On January 28, Save the Children, in collaboration with Da Nang DOET, organized an engagement trip for the partner Prudential Viet Nam to three project schools in Da Nang, including a preschool, a primary school and a school for children with special needs. One of the highlights of the trip was the main engagement event at Hoa Phu preschool, where 70 children and 10 volunteers from Prudential Vietnam participated in a creative session with book coloring, nutritious snacks, flashmob and photo taking. The event’s main aim is for children to learn about good hygiene practices to help prevent COVID-19. In addition, the volunteers helped decorate a wall displaying COVID-19 prevention messages to promote awareness for children and their parents.
This activity is part of the “We are in this together” project funded by Prudential Viet Nam and Eastspring Investments Vietnam and managed by Save the Children. The project’s objective is to strengthen resilience to support deprived children in order to reduce drop-out rates and child labor during the COVID-19 epidemic in Da Nang city. Specifically, this support package provides consumable medical items like soap, hand sanitizer, thermometers, face masks, etc. and suitable equipment to enhance hygiene practices at school, as well as nutritious school snacks.
