The end of the school term also marked the completion of the Nutrition Project initiated by CLD (Vietnam) in collaboration with the International Dairy Products JSC (IDP), one of Vietnam’s fastest-growing dairy product firms.
Through the Nutrition Project that is supported by CHF, which aims to supplement the nutritional needs of the students under the CapitaLand Hope School Programme, more than 223,000 packs of milk were distributed to about 1,400 students in the 2022-2023 academic year.
In partnership with IDP, health check-ups were conducted at the start and end of the project to monitor the students’ health and development. They indicated that 73 per cent of the participants showed an improvement in their health by the end of the project.
According to Ronald Tay, CEO of CLD (Vietnam), CapitaLand is committed to building a better future for children in need by providing support for their educational needs and wellbeing.
|“As a strong advocate of volunteerism, we are proud that our staff volunteers have taken time to join our corporate social responsibility activities and give back to the community,” Tay said. |
Over the past years, a total of over 6,000 staff volunteer hours have been contributed to support the students at the four schools in Phu Tho, Hung Yen, and Long An provinces.
Since 2007, CLD (Vietnam) and CHF have contributed to the upgrading of school facilities to provide a safe and conducive learning environment for the students, as well as improving access to education through various programmes such as My Schoolbag and CapitaLand Kids.
Do Muoi, principal of CapitaLand Quang Yen Primary Hope School, said that the school believes that a quality education plays a crucial role in providing children with a better start in life.
“We remain focused on providing a conducive environment for holistic education where students can learn effectively and also pick up positive values and attitudes to support their overall development. We are grateful to have dedicated stakeholders like CLD (Vietnam) and CHF to support us on this journey. On behalf of the school faculty, the students, and their families, we would like to thank CLD Vietnam and CHF, as well as other relevant stakeholders, for their continued support throughout the years,” Muoi said.
