Build a School Library for Khe Sanh



A library for the Khe Sanh Primary School will be a first for students in this remote Vietnamese town. Hundreds of disadvantaged ethnic Paco and Bru-Van Kieu children will benefit from access to books and computers giving them a chance at a brighter future. From families living on less than $15 per month, these children are among the poorest in Vietnam.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

No dedicated library exists at the Khe Sanh Primary School. 35% of the 722 students are ethnic minorities living under the poverty line. The students currently use a makeshift library consisting of 2 broken bookshelves and 2 small reading tables. With limited and outdated learning materials, teachers and students alike are faced with the challenge of preparing for the future under difficult circumstances.

How will this project solve this problem?

An adequate library will provide these students with a positive learning environment. This library will also promote literacy as a key to lifelong learning for 1000 students enrolled at outlying schools in the Huong Hoa District. The library will provide the district's teachers with additional resources for curriculum design and implementation.

Potential Long Term Impact

The library will be a cornerstone in the long term education of the children in Khe Sanh region. It will help to bridge the gap between these poor rural children and students in the more developed areas of the country. GCSF believes investment in infrastructure and education will aid community development in western Quang Tri Province.
