Nearly 300 students at Ba Ria-Vung Tau School for Disabled Children have greeted the new school year with a special celebration brought by SCG, focusing on health and safety as well as interesting project-based activities to hype up their passion for study.

As the regional sustainable business leader, SCG puts great emphasis on the well-being of the communities where it operates. In Ba Ria-Vung Tau – the location of the company’s flagship project Long Son Petrochemical Complex – SCG has actively initiated and participated in various projects to uplift the lives of the local people. Chief amongst those is the sponsorship for Ba Ria-Vung Tau School for Disabled Children since 2009.
Soros Khlongchoengsan, HR Director of Long Son Petrochemicals Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of SCG said, “At SCG, we believe in the value of individuals, especially the children who are the future of our country. With this philosophy did SCG decide to support Ba Ria-Vung Tau School for Disabled Children, and our companionship have been persisting during the past 10 years, especially through occasions such as International Children’s Day or Mid-Autumn Festival.”
“This year, amidst the rise of COVID-19, we would like to support the school to prepare its students for a healthy and safe new school year. Hence, SCG has helped sterilise the classrooms, equip contactless hand sanitising sprayers, sports equipment, as well as provided materials to train students about hygiene habits at school. Besides, we also gave practical gifts to the children such as masks, hand sanitisers, backpacks, and stationeries, so that they can start their school year healthily and eagerly,” Khlongchoengsan added.
Nguyen Huu Dung, head master of the school said, “As a school for disabled children, it is more critical for us to keep our students safe and healthy these days. Our children need special help and guidance to establish hygiene habits. Therefore, SCG’s support is really timely and meaningful. It reduces the burden of the school and the teachers, and also adds more excitement to our new school year.”
Furthermore, SCG also encouraged students to apply circular economy concepts in their learning during the upcoming school year. Using recycled materials, the disable students themselves have created astounding models for classroom study, which is not only environmentally friendly but also lively as learning materials. This activity continues the corporate’s effort since last year to build a green culture at the school. More special, in this year, SCG also donated 10 Doozypack Paper Playhouse – the first B2C products of SCG Packaging. These recycled cartoon playhouses are meaningful gifts for the students to unleash their creativity as well as a safe in-house playground in high time of COVID-19.
With the commitment to support the local communities where SCG operates, as the sponsor of Ba Ria-Vung Tau School for Disabled Children for the past 11 years, SCG has consistently organised International Children’s Day Celebration for the school on an annual basis. This year’s effort continues the company’s journey to develop the young generation of the province.
SCG is known as a leading conglomerate who has contributed greatly to the human development of Vietnam through various projects including SCG Sharing the Dream Scholarships giving more than 4,200 scholarships over more than 10 years in Vietnam, SCG Sharing the Dream Playground building four large playgrounds for children in Ho Chi Minh City and Ba Ria-Vung Tau, as well as Kick & Share by SCG – a series of football clinics across multiple countries in the past few years, inviting students from all across Ba Ria-Vung Tau province to cheer at football matches and join mini games before the matches and many other initiatives.
