The Office of Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) in Vietnam on Jan. 12 attended the inauguration ceremony of Dinh Thai Primary School and Thai Hoa Secondary School.
This is a project within the framework of the Tuyen Quang Province Rural Development Project, as funded by the Republic of Korea (ROK) through the KOICA in Vietnam.
Tuyen Quang province, 170km north of Hanoi capital, is a locality with a long history in the independence of Vietnam. Since 1945, during the nine years of the resistance against French colonialism, Tuyen Quang used to be the revolutionary base of the revolutionary government led by President Ho Chi Minh.
However, due to the peculiarity of being a mountainous province, lack of medical and educational facilities, limited access to transportation, and scanty area of agricultural land capable of cultivation, Tuyen Quang is still classified in the group of poor provinces of Vietnam.
With a total investment of US$15 million, the Tuyen Quang Rural Development Programme focuses on empowering women, improving sustainable livelihoods, building capacity and improving the quality of healthcare and education, towards comprehensive and sustainable development in difficult communes across Tuyen Quang, as well as improving the quality of life of local people.
