VIETNAM – The Costa Foundation completes two new nursery schools in rural communities

The Costa Foundation has completed two new nursery schools for marginalised ethnic minority communities in remote coffee growing communities of Vietnam.

The 36th and 37th school projects completed by the Costa Foundation opened with great excitement from the children and parents of local families.

In Dak Lak province in the Central Highlands and Lam Doung province in the Southern Highlands of Vietnam, two new nursery schools are have been completed to help nearly 300 children who are between the ages of three to six year.

The schools will help them learn to speak and read the national language and so gain access to the national primary and secondary school system

In the remote coffee growing areas of the country many communities are made up of indigenous people from ethnic minority backgrounds with their own languages, customs and practices. Without the national language they cannot succeed at school and therefore they would remain within a marginalised population.

The Costa Foundation has now built 5 schools in Vietnam with 32 more around the world that bring life changing education to coffee farming communities, helping enable the people within those areas to work together and improve their own situation.
