|GNI establishes and supports VND 77 million loans to develop production for Vikawa Trading & Service Cooperative (Thanh Hoa).|
The Korean non-governmental organization Good Neighbors in Vietnam (GNI) has just held a ceremony to establish and support VND 77 million loan to develop production for Vikawa Trade and Service Cooperative in Vinh Loc district.
The main products of the cooperative are purified drinking water in 19L bottles, 500ml bottles and 350ml bottles which have passed QC06/BYT standard for safe drinking-water.
Since 2019, with the support of Korea Institute of Ceramics Engineering and Technology (KICET), GNI has conducted water quality testing and drilled wells in Ninh Khang commune.
GNI continues to be sponsored by KICET to set up a RO water purification system for 1000L/H output, light disinfection and bottle closure system in 2020. After nearly a year of operation, water quality has been confirmed and free water is provided to a large number of people in Ninh Khang commune.
In 2021, GNI and Ninh Khang Commune Project Management Board established a cooperative to produce and supply quality drinking water products to local people.
In that spirit, GNI and the local government of Ninh Khang commune on Aug. 4 held a ceremony to officially open Vikawa Trading & Service Cooperative. Vikawa stands for Vinh Khang Water - the old name of Ninh Khang commune now.
Also in this ceremony, GNI gave the cooperative a loan of VND 77 million. With this support, GNI hopes that the cooperative will boost production, thereby contributing to increasing income for members and improving quality of life.
In the near future, the cooperative will supply to the market its main product - pure drinking water in 19L bottles, 500ml bottles and 350ml bottles.

These are two schools that have joined the Speak Out project since 2019 and will continue to receive support in this year.
Besides, GNI will replicate the consultation room model at Minh Khai Secondary School and Le Quy Don Secondary School in Hanoi.
According to the research report on mental health and psychosocial well-being of children and young people in some provinces and cities in Vietnam of Unicef and the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs in February 2018, the percentage of children and reenagers suffering from psychological problems account for 8% to 29% with different rates by province and gender. Therefore, accompanying children to prevent, detect and solve problems arising in spiritual life plays an increasingly important role.
