There have always been cross-community initiatives at UNIS Hanoi to support literacy in Vietnam. The Birthday Gift Fund seeks to support a wide range of projects involving collaboration between students from both divisions and parents.
The prohibitive cost of books, under-resourced school libraries and lack of public libraries means access to books in Vietnam is severely limited. The goal for our literacy projects is to develop mobile and other resources and other that will be taken out into the community to help make reading a part of everyday life.
Our literacy projects aim to provide children and adults alike, with access to books and the opportunity to improve their literacy and broader learning.
Literacy Projects will receive 2,750 USD from the Birthday Gift Fund and will be sustained by funds from the annual SCO Book Sale.
