Education is always at the core of sustainable development and ensures that everyone enjoys the right to live with dignity, playing an important role in helping people realize economic and social rights. The State of Vietnam has placed education at the heart of the Socio-Economic Development Strategy for the period of 2011 - 2020 towards sustainable development.
Thoi An Hoi 2 Primary School, Thoi An Hoi commune was built in 1993. The school's infrastructure and facilities are still limited after many years of operation as sanitation systems are not convenient and friendly for students to use. The school yard is bare, often flooded during the rainy season, making it difficult for students to access a quality education. Therefore, the project proposes to build five new classrooms, toilets and drainage systems, as well as upgrade school grounds and fences around the school to improve the quality of facilities for children. The new project has a budget of 2.5 billion VND.
