BINH DUONG (VNS) — Dairy company Friesland Campina Viet Nam has received the Prime Minister's Certificate of Merit for helping disadvantaged children through its Den Dom Dom (Firefly) programme.

The programme, initiated in 2002, seeks to help stop disadvantaged children from dropping out of school and to build new schools in remote areas and offer scholarships to local children.

Under the Den Dom Dom programme, the Dutch company has built 10 schools at a cost of more than VND30 billion (US$1.4 million) in remote areas in Quang Binh, Gia Lai, Ca Mau, Binh Phuoc, Kon Tum, and Lai Chau and provided 20,000 scholarships to poor children. — VNS
