The Project for the Improvement of Primary Schools in the Northern Mountain Region of Vietnam (Phase Ⅴ)

Translated with (free version)


This project is the fifth phase of the Japanese grant aid program for the development of educational facilities in Vietnam, which was launched in 1993 to support the country's socio-economic development through the introduction of a market economy and an open-door policy. This is the fifth plan of the project. The target areas are Ha Giang, Lai Chau, Cao Bằng, and Bac Kan, four provinces out of eight provinces in the northern mountainous region that were requested by the Vietnamese government and judged to be particularly urgent due to the significant delay in the development of educational facilities.

Project description

In this project, unlike the previous four projects, in addition to the main school, a branch school covering a small area at the village level was added to the cooperation target in order to improve the schooling environment of the entire community. Considering the fact that the construction sites are scattered in a rugged mountainous area with limited access, the branch schools are basically one-story buildings, and the plan is based on local standard materials and construction methods to reduce the cost and maintenance.
