The 7-grader Ho Lien of Suoi Bac secondary school (Son Hoadistrict) was so happy receiving the bike from the program “bikes to school2018”, this student shared, “ I have an old bike given by a relative. Thejourney form home to school is nearly 5km but some days the bike “gotuncontrolled” and this meant I was late for class. Sometimes I did not manageto have money for bike repairing, I had to take a lift. Now that I have gotthis new bike, I am so much happy and no longer worry about being late forclass”. The family of the student named Y Phin, class 9B of Nguyen Hao Susecondary school (Xuan Phuoc commune, Dong Xuan district) is a poor household.For ages, Phin has never got a bike, hence, walking to school or taking a liftused to be the choice. Y Phin said, “I have got the new bike and I amdetermined to study well so as live up to the expectations of the uncles andaunts”.

25 bikes, each valued nearly2 million dongs sponsored buy the program are donated to the students indifficulties are practically meaningful gifts in terms of helping the studentsto feel safe going to school. Mrs. Pham Thi Minh Hien, vice director of Phu Yendepartment of labor-war invalids-social affairs, let known: this support isreally meaningful in the context of annually Vietnam having over 200,000children quit schooling, one of the main reasons is the journey beingexperienced by walking, too far the distances. Lots of children who live inremote areas have to walk from 5km to 10km or even farther to school. Thesedifficulties, have considerably impacted the learning outcomes and thelikelihood of continuing schooling of the children. Via this program, we hopeto propagate, enhance the awareness of citizens in  society of the protection of children’srights, joining hands to assist the children.
