Thanh Son Elementary School and Kindergarten Upgrade
The Muong are most closely related to the ethnic Vietnamese, however culturally and socially more similar to Thai people. The Muong rely on crop cultivation (mostly wet rice), animal husbandry and fishing to sustain their lives. The village of Pa Van in Thanh Hoa province is home to approximately 400 people, with 26 children attending the elementary school from grades 1-5 and 30 younger children attending the kindergarten.
The school and kindergarten is in disrepair. With the assistance of local building experts, we will renovate the school and kindergarten for the children of the surrounding villages. The first project will build a 15m2 kitchen room for the school that will facilitate the cooking of meals and also provide a space to serve lunch for the pupils. The second project will construct a gravel road to ensure that the students can access the school safely during wet weather, since the current dirt road becomes very muddy and slippery. The new gravel road will include steps made from bamboo at the base and gravel over the top, will be 100m in length and 1.5m in width and will include a side water pipe to redirect water.
Purchase of equipment and supplies for the school kitchen or the purchase of materials for the new pathway to the school.
This specific project is taking place in March 2015, however if you'd like to arrange a private group community project at this school (there must be more than two people) please email [email protected].
