Desks for Children at School in Hau Giang Province
Story: The desks in this particular school were old, falling apart and unsuitable - and definitely not an encouragement for children to attend school each day!
Problem: The desks were made of old, solid timber, which had expanded and contracted over the many years and provided an uneven and uninviting workplace for students.
Solution: The Consular Club has funded the purchase of 50 desks for students (each desk seating two to three students) and desks for the teachers. These desks are functional in providing a better workspace foe both students and teachers, but might also encourage the children to attend school. Built of MFC and melamine, the desks should resist the local elements and provide an improved teaching and learning environment for years to come.
