Many Vietnamese students have to leave school due to difficult circumstances or the long distance between their homes and schools. Many students in remote areas have to walk 5-10 kilometres to school each day. These difficulties have badly affected their academic results and their future.
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.
