Pham Hien, president of the Learning Promotion Association of Ngu Hanh Son district in Danang city made the remark at the ceremony on donating scholarships from Swing for the Kids Fund to pupils and students who have posted good academic results despite living in difficult circumstances.

The ceremony took place last Friday (January 15) at Ngu Hanh Son District People’s Committee.

The Swing for the Kids Fund of VIR provides a source of inspiration, motivating children to strive for better results and grow into good citizens for their families and society.

Ngu Hanh Son is home to 248 especially needy households, with 248 pupils and students going to school. The local government has rendered support for needy households and their children, but support level remains finite.

“The sum of VND50 million ($2,170) from the Swing for the Kids Fund earmarked 100 pupils and students living in Ngu Hanh Son district today is very meaningful, inspiring the kids to make greater strides in their learning and progress in life,” said Hien.

Mai Hien, Deputy Chairman of Ngu Hanh Son District People’s Committee, delivered thanks to VIR and Danang Department of Information and Communications for paying regards to underprivileged pupils and students in the district, from there motivating the children to overcome adversities and strive for betterment in the upcoming time.

VIR is happy to have the opportunity to support the students in Ngu Hanh Son district who have achieved good academic results despite their disadvantages,” said Hoang Kim Thuy, VIR chief representative in the Central and Central Highlands region.

In the past couple of years, VIR, the press agency of the Ministry of Planning and Investment, has donated hundreds of scholarships to needy pupils and students in Danang in Vietnam's central region.

Last year, VIR took its scholarships to Ninh Thuan, Phu Yen, and Danang, and in the forthcoming time will turn to Quang Binh province.

The Swing for the Kids Fund provides a source of inspiration, motivating children to strive for better results and grow into good citizens for their families and society.

Since 2007, in the past 14 years, the fund brought more than 16,000 scholarships to needy pupils and students with stellar academic results; bringing computers to classrooms, as well as supporting the repair and upgrading of learning facilities in 40 cities and provinces nationwide.
