1. Construction of new schools in disadvantaged areas and not included in the Government's construction planning within 5 years.
2. Renovate and upgrade facilities for disadvantaged schools.
3. Build a digital and book library through: donating computers and book to the library and instructing students to use computers.


According to research, the proportion of ethnic minority children who have never attended school or have dropped out of school has decreased significantly compared to 2009. Although there has been significant progress after 10 years, the proportion of children in Disadvantaged areas and mountainous areas of Vietnam have the highest rate of non-school attendance compared to other groups of children in urban areas and cities. Research also shows that there is a large difference in children not going to school between the poorest and richest households, this difference becomes larger especially at higher levels of education.
At the age of 5, the rate of children not going to school among poor households is nearly 3 times higher than that of rich households. Primary school age is 5.5 times and middle school age is 10 times. Children of primary and secondary school age in all rural areas are more disadvantaged than children in urban areas, of which the most disadvantaged are children in the Northern Midlands, Mountains and Central Highlands regions. The reasons for this situation, in addition to financial issues, are largely related to commune and local planning for school facilities; Teachers and students do not have adequate school facilities to withstand rain, wind, and storms in difficult areas.
(According to UNESCO report)
In the past 5 years, projects supporting the construction and renovation of schools in difficult areas have been focused and received a lot of attention from the government, businesses and philanthropists. However, schools where infrastructure is not yet developed, causing difficulties in construction and transportation of materials, have difficulty in accessing the above funds while needing them the most. Realising this current situation, JCI TL has implemented the project, with one of the important goals being to build schools with difficult infrastructure, not included in the improvement plan within 3 years.

JCI partners with the United Nations to implement the 17 sustainable development goals. From the observed situations in Vietnam, we launched the project to contribute to the implementation of these goals in a multilateral and comprehensive manner with specific short-term and long-term responses such as :

1. Regarding short-term results:
- The project most clearly implements goal number 4 and Quality Education in the 17 SDGs, contributing to completing the targets of providing quality education equality for children; Enhance knowledge, skills, and job preparation for all children.
- The project also contributes to the 9th goal of infrastructure development, specifically developing social infrastructure (schools), ensuring the minimum right to school for local children, promoting promote equality and economic development.
- The project clearly demonstrates the combination and integration of diverse resources for the common goal of equality and sustainable development, fully meeting the metrics of goal 17 on Partnership for the goals.

2. About long-term benefits
- The project contributes to goal 8, related to Decent Jobs and economic growth.
- The project also shares very clear metrics with goal number 10 on Reducing Inequality, specifically in disseminating equal quality education in Vietnam.
- With goal number 16, the project satisfies the metrics like 16.10 in ensuring freedom of access to information and knowledge to gain knowledge and understanding of rights and laws, ensuring fairness in public representation in institutions.
