Since April 2019, STEP called for Public Donation for our Community Library Project for the children in Binh Thuan Province. Until now, we did raised 66,656,000 VND out of estimated budget of 95,000,000 VND. With the support in designing and construction process managing from NPA Group, STEP just received the first Design for the Library.
This year, STEP plan to build a Community Library for children in Tanh Linh District, Binh Thuan Province. Tanh Linh is a mountainous district of Binh Thuan province, which has a lot of ethnic minority pupils. The local children, some of them go to school only in the morning and in the evening, they work to support their family such as raising livestock, raising buffaloes, raising cows and goats. The rest, as they have no conditions to go to school, they only stay at home to help with farm work.
This is a crowded area and it has a few elementary and junior high schools, however not only it doesn’t have any libraries or cultural center for children, but also it lacks of recreational center. They are in need of places to read books, play games or take part in outdoor activities to improve their life skills such as music, art, English… Thus, Step Forward Exchange has decided to choose this area to build a community library for children.
With the support in designing and construction process managing from NPA Group, STEP just received the first Design for the Library. STEP Team and NPA Group will visit the project site again in August to look for building materials and to work with local constructors. We expect to start building in the beginning of September 2019.
Construction Project, it's much more difficult, but we believe that it can bring long-term impacts. Besides building the library, Step Forward Exchange will also create some playgrounds for the kids. We hope the children can have more opportunities to play traditional games, relax and grow up as equally as other children in big cities. There will have a lot of games to develop mentally and physically, which can be organized by themselves such as football, baseball, chess and even village fairs in the weekend.
