2018 Kwong Lung Vietnam Child Care Program
 2018-10-09
In 2018, Kwong Lung granted the child care program for kids in Jinnuo Village, Vietnam. Kwong Lung cooperates with Zhi-Shan Foundation Taiwan to serve lunches, school supplies, and daily necessities in childcare centers.In Jinnuo Village, most of the childcare centers do not provide lunch; therefore, children do not want to go back to school after lunch breaks.
Kwong Lung provides lunches for children to stay at the school. In this case, these children can spend more time studying.Moreover, most of the children do not have enough nutrition for a long time. For this reason, Kwong Lung provides snacks, soy milk, and cakes for these children.
And we expected that the malnutrition rate should go down.

 

Objectives:

62 children between aged 3-5 in Jinnuo Village

 

Service Content:

Provide lunch at school

Hold a year-end event for 62 children

Provide soy milk every day

2017-2018 School Year Scholarship

 

Results:

Improve the school attendance rate of children in the service area (close to 100%) and

reduce children's malnutrition from 71.6% to 21%. Since most children spend all day in school,

their parents can have more time to work and increase family income.

Parents are willing to come to the school to help teachers prepare lunches for children.

At the end of the 2017-2018 school year, 21 children entered the first grade of elementary school.
