Over the five days (3 – 7 April 2015) of voluntary work at the school, the volunteers helped to pave the yard, paint and design a wall mural, create “green” space, set up a library-cum-reading room and clean the classroom furniture. The volunteers are also tasked to have interactive learning sessions for the students so that the students could have an opportunity to interact and learn new knowledge out of their regular school curriculum. On the third day of the expedition, volunteers visited the students’ homes and spent time with them to understand their lifestyle and living conditions.
In November 2014, CapitaLand Hope Foundation, the philanthropic arm of CapitaLand, donated VND1.3 billion to build two new classroom, and a multipurpose room as well as to upgrade the existing school facilities.
