BÀ RỊA – VŨNG TÀU — Thailand’s SCG Group on Monday handed over a 775 square-metres quality playground, customised for Long Sơn 2 Primary School.
The school is located in Long Sơn Commune, Bà Rịa- Vũng Tàu Province.
This is also the main location of the company’s flagship project, Long Sơn Petrochemicals complex, which SCG started together with PetroVietnam since 2008.
The playground, as part of SCG’s commitment to local human development, costs nearly VNĐ2.5 billion (over US$100,000) and is designed to provide a safe and smart play space for the children, the company said in its statement.
After this project, SCG will continue to build two more playgrounds for the commune, including at Long Sơn 1 Primary School and Tuổi Thơ Kindergarten, it said.
“SCG commits to long term development and better living for communities in Việt Nam, especially where we have our operations. We believe that children are the future of the nation, so SCG has developed many social responsibility programmes to improve their quality of life, including the SCG Sharing the Dream playground, which will develop better education both mentally and physically,” Somchai Wangwattanapanich, vice president of Operations at SCG Chemicals, said.
In line with SCG’s long-term commitment to the local community of Long Sơn commune, SCG has initiated many projects focusing on human development. Among them are the SCG Sharing the Dream scholarship for high school students, the renovation of Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu’s School for Disabled Children and the annual Children’s Day Celebration for the children here. — VNS
