AKP Launches New Program in Vietnam!

VIETNAM | Hoa An Kindergarten used to be the kindergarten in the village that no one wanted to send their child to. If you couldn’t afford to send your child to a different school you were stuck attending this school. Although the teacher at the school, Miss Hinh, cares about her students very much she was unable to renovate the school on her own. The school was uninviting, with worn down walls and doors and a lack of warmth needed to make the children comfortable in school. Most importantly, the school lacked a roof in the courtyard where the children play, so they were exposed to the hot sun and rain.
In 2018, AKP partnered with Hoa An Kindergarten to improve the learning environment for its students, funding the construction of a roof for the courtyard so the children can safely play outside, repairing the three main doors to the kindergarten which were heavily damaged, painting and plastering holes in the walls, providing fans and light bulbs, and painting warm pictures on the walls to create a safe and comfortable learning environment for the young learners.
