The Project for Improvement of Primary Schools in Vietnam (Phase Ⅲ)

Translated with (free version)


In line with the transition to a market economy, Vietnam has been emphasizing the cultivation of human resources and has been working on educational development under the banner of "Education for All". However, due to the lack and aging of primary education facilities, the country has been forced to have two- and three-part classes, which has been a major obstacle to improving enrollment and completion rates. In response, the government of Vietnam formulated an emergency development plan for 610 schools in 30 provinces across the country and requested Japan's grant assistance for the development of primary education facilities in three provinces in the central coastal region as the third plan, following the first (three provinces in the Red River Delta region) and the second (three provinces in the central coastal region).

Project description

This project involved the reconstruction and expansion of 514 classrooms in 45 schools and the provision of educational equipment in the three provinces of Quang Binh, Quang Tri and Thua Thien Hue in the central coastal region of Vietnam. The school buildings, all of which are two-storeys high, consist of classrooms, multi-purpose rooms, conference rooms, and an administration room combining the principal's office and teachers' offices, and are designed in a simple single corridor style to significantly reduce the cost from the first project facilities, which were designed in a double corridor (outer corridor + balcony).
