On November 1, Generali Vietnam collaborated with the National Fund for Vietnamese Children (NFVC), Dak Lak Fund for Children, and Phu Loc People’s Committee to organise an opening ceremony to inaugurate a new kindergarten branch for Phu Loc Kindergarten.
The classroom is fully funded via the Tiep Buoc Em Den Truong (Supporting the Children’s Schooling Steps) initiative jointly organised by Generali Vietnam and the NFVC within Generali’s The Human Safety Net Global Challenge 2022.
The project’s completed works will be immediately put into operation in the academic year 2022-2023. These include a fully equipped classroom building, a standard playground, sanitation area, and other classroom equipment.

The fundraising initiative received wholehearted support and participation, as well as generous donations from hundreds of staff, agents, public members, and donors across the country.
Volunteers and fundraisers gathered to exercise and complete pledged physical challenges, while calling for their families, friends, and the public to encourage their efforts by donating to the charity fund.
On this occasion, to promote the love for reading and help the kindergarten children to develop a positive reading habit from a young age, Generali and its partners also gifted a ‘mini library’ with hundreds of books and reading materials.

Many books were recommended by the community via the Kindergarten Book Ideas Contest on The Human Safety Net Vietnam fanpage.

“Investing in children’s health and education is always a top priority for families and society. We hope that the new kindergarten featuring a spacious, safe, clean, and well-equipped learning environment will help shape a brighter future for our children,” said Tina Nguyen, Generali Vietnam CEO. “We would also like to express our sincere appreciation for the NFVC for joining hands and supporting us in realising our ambition of becoming lifetime partner to millions of Vietnamese families.”
Hoang Van Tien, director of the NFVC remarked, “The school building fundraising initiative once again affirms Generali’s pioneering position in implementing unique and innovative community initiatives that deliver practical and sustainable values."
Tien added, “With the project team’s determination and dedication, we are glad to have been able to quickly have this project successfully executed and school put into operation. This helps meet the urgent needs of Phu Loc kindergarten’s children and staff, as well as the families of 30 kindergarten children aged 3-5 years currently enrolled by the school."

The new facility will replace the poor conditioned classroom that temporarily made use of the village’s common room, where learning and teaching activities are often interrupted by the village’s activities.
The new kindergarten is expected to offer a safe and well-equipped learning and playing environment for the children, thereby contributing to the comprehensive growth of generations of kindergarten children in the local community.
Tiep Buoc Em Den Truong is part of Generali Group’s The Human Safety Net Global Challenge 2022 with the participation of more than 2,500 Generali volunteers from across 23 countries, helping more than 5,000 parents and children all over the world.
