SMEC’s generous donation will finance the construction of a 30-square-meter kitchen facility at Thanh Long Kindergarten. This upgrade will address the current inadequate and unsafe kitchen conditions that put the health and well-being of the 70 young children at risk. By creating a clean and secure environment, SMEC aims to foster a love for learning, break the cycle of poverty, and reduce vulnerability to trafficking. The improved kitchen will be equipped with cooking and washing areas, essential appliances, and proper kitchenware, ensuring that the children receive healthy and hygienic meals. This will enhance their overall well-being and enthusiasm for education, empowering them to overcome the challenges of poverty and build a promising future.
The Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation is committed to combatting human trafficking and exploitation in Vietnam, particularly among vulnerable children and young adults who have experienced homelessness or trafficking. They employ a comprehensive approach that includes direct services, long-term initiatives, policy advocacy, and education.
SMEC’s continued partnership with the Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation underscores its unwavering commitment to corporate social responsibility and highlights how collaboration between the private sector and non-profit organisations can drive positive change in disadvantaged communities.
