Fifty restrooms with advanced wastewater treatment technology will be built for Vietnamese students in 2023 at a cost of over U$600,000.

The Central Committee of the Vietnam National Union of Students and KN Holdings Corporation JSC co-hosted a signing ceremony to implement the 'Restrooms for Students' program on Wednesday afternoon.

The program is aimed at equipping schools and improving the teaching and learning quality in many parts of Vietnam, primarily in underprivileged areas.

Specifically, the program will target Hung Yen, Nam Dinh, Thai Binh, Ha Tinh, Dak Lak, Khanh Hoa, Dong Nai, and Kien Giang Provinces. The total cost of the project is expected to hit VND14 billion ($600,600).

The new restrooms will be the first in Vietnam to feature advanced water treatment technology, according to Nguyen Minh Triet, chairman of the Central Committee of the Vietnam National Union of Students.

Triet also shared that the Central Committee of the Vietnam National Union of Students hopes the project will help ensure that at least 50 percent of schools in the targeted provinces have sufficient restroom facilities to service students, and 80 percent of the restrooms in the target provinces meet the sanitary standards regulated by the Student Health Program for the 2021-25 period. 

Refurbishing, repairing, and rebuilding restrooms in schools are top priorities for the committee and the student union, Triet said. 

The 'Restrooms for Students' program was first launched in 2021. It has so far developed 25 restrooms at schools in 11 cities and provinces nationwide.

During the summer volunteer youth campaign 2022, the country saw 428 restrooms rebuilt at schools and over 1,300 toilets for students upgraded at a total cost of over VND70 billion ($3 million).
