Throughout its 20-year journey of construction and development, RT Holdings has always been committed to the common development of the community. Every day, RT Holdings is constantly seeking to expand learning possibilities for more people through volunteer projects. Furthermore, we encourage students of the Group to display their societal responsibilities and be willing to aid in difficult situations, thus fostering compassion and encouraging a spirit of mutual assistance among them.
Following the success of the community project “Ve nu cuoi Dien Bien,” RT Holdings’ K-12 school systems will begin its new project “Yen Bai, vi ngay mai tuoi dep” in the academic year 2023 – 2024.
Throughout the academic year, each school will arrange relevant activities and events to raise funds for the project through the following funds:
- WASS Community Foundation: Empower the Next Generation
- PennSchool Community Foundation: Light Up the Future
- SISS Community Fund: Build A Better Tomorrow
Estimated total budget: 1,196,480,000 VND. Below are more details concerning these four projects:
“Strengthen the Present – Create the Future” Project at Son Thinh, Van Chan, Yen Bai Province
One of the most significant challenges that students from the Highlands face is a lack of accommodation, which makes it difficult for them to attend school. The majority of H’mong students currently attend schools in Son Thinh Commune, Van Chan District, Yen Bai Province, where 96 out of 654 students attend Son Thinh High School and 74 out of 665 students attend Son Thinh Secondary School. However, due to geographic constraints, poor economic situations, and a lack of transportation, some students require secure housing in order to attend class without disruption.
The goal of this project is to develop housing for 40 to 50 H’Mong students close to the school. A total of 134.4 m2 of land will be used for the project, 118.56 m2 of which will be designated as priority space for classrooms and bedrooms. The remaining space will be used to build a community living area.
Budget: 628,368,000 VND
Estimated construction time: 3 months, 15 days
“Community House” Project at Son Thinh, Van Chan, Yen Bai Province
The preservation, maintenance, and promotion of traditional cultural beauty is critical for children from ethnic minority communities, including the H’Mong in particular. This is especially important for students at Son Thinh Secondary School and Son Thinh High School because they are the H’Mong people’s future.
The School is running the “Community House” project alongside the “Strengthen the Present – Create the Future” project, both of which aim to build homes for H’Mong students in Son Thinh Commune, Van Chan District, Yen Bai Province. Using a total of 71.28 m2 of land (over 134.4 m2 for the entire housing project and community living space), the project will include a cafeteria for children and a community living area. After school, students can relax and unwind while also practicing their native songs, dances, and activities.
Budget: 171,072,000 VND
Estimated construction time: 3 months, 15 days
“Conquer the Future – Connect the Knowledge” Project at Tuc Dan, Tram Tau, Yen Bai Province
In accordance with the 2018 MoET Program, implemented during the 2020 academic year, Information Technology has been added as an elective subject in grades 1 through 2 and a compulsory subject in grades 3 and above. However, computers have not yet been provided for students at Tuc Dan Primary & Secondary Ethnic Boarding High School (in Pate Village). The school currently has 989 students, including 431 middle schoolers who require computers in order to pursue information technology. Students are still expected to use the local school’s computer lab, which frequently experiences IT issues.
As part of the “Conquer the Future – Connect the Knowledge” project, a system of 20 PCs will be installed to assist the school’s IT department in meeting the demands of learning and gaining access to technology, while also providing students with an appropriate environment for technological learning.
Budget: 152,000,000 VND
“Way to School – Way to Dreams” Project at Tuc Dan, Tram Tau, Yen Bai Province
The lives of ethnic minorities are rendered even more challenging by inadequate transportation infrastructure and hazardous roadways. The H’Mong ethnic group faces risks in their daily lives in Lang Tong Village, Tuc Dan Commune, Tram Tau District, Yen Bai Province, due to insufficient transportation and steep, hazardous, slippery, and dangerous roads. Thus, it is exceptionally challenging to get to places such as schools and hospitals when floods trigger landslides.
For more than 400 H’Mong students, the daily task of going to school to study comes with several challenges. One could argue that the dangers they face on their way to school contribute to any difficulties in learning. Therefore, the “Way to School – Way to Dreams” project will assist in funding the construction of around 1 km of concrete road on the most dangerous rocky slope in Lang Tong Village. This initiative will make it easier for local residents and students to get around and reduce traffic hazards as a result.
Budget: 245,040,000 VND
