Lao Cai is a province of the mountainous Northwest region of Vietnam and among the poorest provinces in Vietnam. It is notable as a hill resort and market centre for the local ethnic Hmong, including the Red, Black, Green and Flower Hmong.
The school students are known for their colourful clothing and dancing with bamboo stilks.
We have installed water filtration projects in the province in 2019 and are now excited to donate SaWa bags to the rural schools in the province with the help of the local Government.
Through our Giving Back Initiative we have distributed 30 SaWa bags to three rural schools.
Many thanks to the local Government for allowing us to donate SaWa bags to the rural schools and to First Trust ACPA and Grant Thornton for their time and support.
We are looking forward to visiting the schools in 2022 and to see the SaWa bags in use.
