For the purpose of supporting children in the highlands, last May, Kosy Group cooperated with Investor Magazine and Dien Bien Phu Newspaper to visit and award 200 scholarships to poor students with good performance in Phinh Giang commune, Dien Bien Dong district, Dien Bien province.
Dien Bien is one of the mountainous provinces with the largest number of poor households in the country. The terrain is wide, divided, and traffic is difficult, especially in the rainy season. This is also a locality where 21 ethnic groups living together, of which mainly Mong and Thai ethnic groups, most are poor with low educational attainment. Phinh Giang Semi-boarding Ethnic Minority – Primary School, Dien Bien Dong district is a particularly difficult school in Dien Bien province. The small highland school has inadequate facilities, 100% of the students belong to ethnic minorities, and their family economic condition is poor.
With the desire to encourage their spirit, allowing students to overcome difficulties and study well, on May 27, Kosy Group accompanies Investor Magazine and Dien Bien Phu Newspaper to organize a program presented 200 scholarships, each worth 500,000 VND to students of Phinh Giang Semi-boarding Ethnic Minority – Primary School and 15 water heaters for 3 schools in Phinh Giang commune.
Sharing at the volunteer trip, Mr. Ha Sy Dinh – Deputy General Director of Kosy Group in charge of Hydropower projects expressed: “This program has great significance that help businesses accompany the press agencies to join hands sharing difficulties for remote areas. We hope in the future this program could be replicated in other schools as well, more gifts would be given to timely encourage students overcoming difficulties to continue their journey of knowledge accumulation, contributing to change the face of locality in the future.”
Responding to the heart of Kosy Group and the volunteer team, Mr. Nguyen Tien Thang – Head of Education and Training Department of Dien Bien Dong district said: “Each scholarship is a valuable source of spiritual encouragement and motivation. To provide each student more energy and confidence to overcome difficulties and shortcomings to realize their dreams and ambitions, to become a good person to society.”.
