Ford Vietnam has cooperated with non-profits “Live and Learn Vietnam” and “Think Playgrounds” to build and open Ha Lo playground in Hanoi’s Dong Anh district.

This is first creative recycled playground for children in the district. The idea is to give a helping hand in environmental protection and raise awareness about the role playing has in the healthy development of children.

Designed by renowned local experts in the field of children’s playgrounds as well as those in France and Germany, materials used in the playground are all recycled, including wood, car tires, and bricks. The playground was completed after a week of construction with the help of volunteers, including 20 from Ford Vietnam.

Every year, Ford Vietnam organizes special programs aimed at children, in order to raise awareness about environmental protection in their daily lives, while helping complete the children’s skills and creativity. Programs include “I Learn to Become a Worker” (2016), “The Green Inventor” and “A Day at the Farm” (2017), and, most recently, “Play Day 2018”, themed “Green Full-Moon Festival - Safety Play”. Similar to Ha Lo playground, these programs received enthusiastic support from volunteers who were employees of Ford Vietnam. These volunteers have already contributed more than 8,000 hours of labor to holding educational programs for children around the country.

“Ford Vietnam is committed to offer long-term investment to support meaningful projects for children, like Ha Lo playground,” said Mr. Pham Van Dung, General Director of Ford Vietnam. “We hope that similar projects will be built in other provinces throughout Vietnam.”
