The United States Indo-Pacific Command has provided Quang Nam Province, central Vietnam with US$998,600 to rebuild two elementary schools.

The two schools are located in Duy Xuyen District.

Nguyen The Duc, vice-chairman of the People’s Committee of the district, said on Friday that the locale was recently given the nod to receive the aid package from the U.S. armed forces.

Accordingly, Duy Thu Elementary School in Tinh Yen Hamlet will be rebuilt at a cost of $517,000.

The school will have six classrooms, four functional rooms, and a teacher’s room, while being fully equipped to ensure the quality of learning and teaching activities.

Work on the project will start in December this year and last until September next year.

Meanwhile, the reconstruction of Duy Vinh Elementary School in Dong Binh Hamlet is projected to cost $481,600.

The school, which is set to be put into operation in May 2024, will feature five classrooms, two functional rooms, and a teacher’s room.

This rebuildinng is meant to alleviate the shortage of classrooms and cater to the educational needs of 180 students.

Nguyen Huu Sau, head of the Duy Xuyen District Office of Education and Training, told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper that the district began dismantling the old facilities and began preparing land lots for the reconstruction in May.

Affected students have been sent to neighboring schools.
