PHÚ YÊN — FrieslandCampina Việt Nam, which owns the Dutch Lady brand of dairy products, has built the Kim Sơn Kindergarten in Phú Yên Province’s Tuy An District under its Đèn Đom Đóm Study Encouragement Programme.
The 800sq.m kindergarten has three classrooms, a kitchen and a playground.
It is the 23rd under the programme undertaken by Dutch Lady in co-operation with the Live & Give Fund.
It helps fulfil children’s dream of going to school and improves nutrition for children living in the country’s remote areas.
Trần Thị Thu Thủy, principal of the kindergarten, said in the past, people living in An Thọ Commune - where the kindergarten has been built -- had to travel dozens of kilometres to take their kids to a kindergarten.
“[Kim Sơn] gives them and their children great joy.”
The Đèn Đom Đóm programme also gives children scholarships. — VNS
