Due to high level of poverty in the communities, most parents were not able to afford means of transport for their children to go to school.
Many Vietnamese students have to leave school due to difficult circumstances or the long distance between their homes and schools. Students in remote areas have to walk 5-10 kilometres to school each day. The long distance they walked made them exhausted and the bicycles would reduce lateness to school, absenteeism and dropout rate.
The bikes is supported by Shilla Hotel through ChildFund Korea and ChildFund Vietnam with the hope that new bikes will give a helping hand to unlucky children in the province so that they can continue their schooling and approach better futures.
