New toilets and hygiene training

Choice Foundation together with our local partner, Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation, have supported the construction of new toilets and clean drinking water at Muong Thin Main School and Muong Yen School. The schools are located in Dien Bien province in North Vietnam – one of the poorest provinces in the country. A total of 310 pupils and 28 teachers and staff have benefitted from the project.

The toilets at the school were in very poor condition – dirty and dangerous and the children were reluctant to use them. At the branch school at Muong Yen there were no toilets at all, only a hole in a canvas tent.

In addition to constructing the toilets, the support from Choice Foundation has enabled Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation to work with the schools to introduce regular hygiene training for the children.
