DA NANG — Around 8,000 disadvantaged students from 66 junior and higher schools in 12 provinces have benefited from a US$3 million tuition subsidy programme in the 2010-13 period.

The Global Partnership on Output-Based Aid (GPOBA) Education programme aimed to encourage students in Thai Binh, Bac Kan, Bac Giang, Phu Tho, Quang Binh, Quang Tri, Thua Thien-Hue, Da Nang, Quang Nam, Quang Ngai, Binh Dinh and Phu Yen to reach 12th grade graduation in three years.

The World Bank-funded programme is expected to develop an educated and skilled work force for Viet Nam. — VNS
