Mondelez Kinh Do has donated 141 used laptops in good conditions to support disadvantaged students through the Pacific Links Foundation. This is the second laptop donation Mondelez Kinh Do has made to support students and teachers, aiming to improve the facilities for study.

Aiming to support the community and help the disadvantaged, Mondelez Kinh Do has recently donated used laptops to disadvantaged students through the Pacific Links Foundation. Students who received the donation are those who were granted scholarships in the SEEDS (Scholarship to Enhance Education and Develop Skills) program targeting to help 9th-grade to graduate students from poor families in the central provinces and GEMS (Girl Empowerment Scholarship) program targeting to support female students and students from the Mekong Delta and South- Central provinces.

The goals of these two scholarship programs are to reduce the number of students quitting school as well as increase the number of students completing high school and entering university. The programs also provide training that helps students to be equipped with soft skills for their future careers. Through the donation, Mondelez Kinh Do has helped thousands of students and teachers have more opportunities to access advanced technology, contributing to improving the quality of teaching and learning.

A total of 141 used laptops in good conditions were given in the program, of which 40 were given to IT departments at schools under the GEMS program. The program also supported female students under the GEMS scholarship who pursue STEM majors at universities in Ho Chi Minh City, and donated 60 laptops to high school students under the SEEDS scholarship coming from the central provinces (from Nghe An to Phu Yen). Separately, 20 laptops were given to PALS’s program of “Self-learning computer science”, and 10 laptops to the program “Old computers, new knowledge” of the University of Information Technology.

Besides outstanding business achievements after eight successful years in the Vietnamese market, Mondelez Kinh Do is recognized as one of the most sustainable enterprises in Vietnam with significant contributions to the community.
