VĨNH LONG — More than 3,000 books were donated to children in the Mekong Delta province of Vĩnh Long on Thursday with the aim of developing the reading culture in the region.
The donation is part of the Happy Library programme, held thanks to the co-operation between the Việt Nam - US Society (VUS) and international non-profit organisation The Library Project.
The programme will empower local libraries in the Mekong Delta region to inspire children to read and give them a chance to get good books, hence improving knowledge for young people in Việt Nam.
On Vietnamese Teachers’ Day, students from Trần Đại Nghĩa School, Vĩnh Long Province also joined an English class with foreign teachers of the VUS with the hope that the experience will inspire and motivate local students to study English.
The two organisations have built nine libraries with 8,000 books in An Giang and Vĩnh Long provinces. First launched in 2017, the programme has provided 16,000 books to children in remote areas. VNS
