Please scroll down below for more facilities images of primary schools at Tri Le Commune, Que Phong District, Nghe An Province:


These primary schools are over 50 km away from the district center with 100% students from H’Mong Ethnic with extremely poor living conditions and complete isolation from outside

Some images from these schools reveal solitary conditions and deficient facilities at the harsh weather borders.

If you come to experience the lives of the children here, there are no proper roads, no electricity, no phone reception, school facilities are deteriorated, all classrooms are made of decayed woods from harsh weather; hence you would understand all the struggles they must overcome just to learn new things… Rain or shine, the children have to pass through miles of dangerous, sloppy and windy roads.

“New clothes, new school year” 2016 continues to accompany with “Fashion and Life” Show on VTV3 – Vietnam Television and Dmax Team Club – Oto Fun Forum, expected to hold on 3 days, from 9th – 11th September 2016, promising to bring meaningful and happy days for the students.
