Bollore Vietnam holds donation program for underprivileged students

In late August, more than 35 volunteers from our Vietnam team donated books and school supplies to Phu Dien Primary and Secondary School.

Despite being in a remote area of Dong Thap province, the school provides access to education and training for more than 300 children from underprivileged backgrounds.

Can TRIEU, QHSE Assistant Manager who was also the key organizer of this program, said, “The objective of this book donation program was to help broaden students’ perspectives by increasing the variety of books they have access to and instilling good reading habits in them. We noticed that classroom books were the only source of knowledge for the students here and we hope that by providing different books for them, they will be able to widen their minds.”

More than 600 books and school supplies, old and new, were contributed by team members of Bolloré Logistics Vietnam and given to the school children there. During the visit, the team also taught the students how to maintain the books in good condition so that others can also share that book. In addition to playing games, gifts such as stationery and cakes to celebrate mid-autumn festival were given to the children too.

“The visit to the school was truly a humbling experience for me. I am glad that our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) team organized this book donation program as I could sense the gratitude the students had for us when we interacted with them. I look forward to contributing more to future initiatives like this,” said one of the Bolloré Logistics Vietnam volunteers, Loan Co Huong, Air Export Manager.
