Project Sponsor: Walter B. and Marie W. Williams International Friendship Fund
A two-room Kindergarten is currently under construction to serve the children of CuTy village, Huong Loc commune, Huong Hoa district, Quang Tri province.
Huong Loc is a mountainous commune located in Huong Hoa district, Quang Tri province. The whole commune has 6 villages, 646 households with 3,262 people. Ethnic minority households account for 94% of the population in the commune. Over 62% of households in the commune are experiencing poverty. CuTy village, one of the six in the commune, has 114 households with 586 people. Approximately 90% of the population belong to the Van Kieu ethnic minority group. The existing CuTy village kindergarten was built in 1992. After 29 years of use, and multiple consecutive storms, including the 2020 floods and landslides, the existing building is insufficient for use. The new two-room school will serve the 47 kindergarten aged children in the village. This kindergarten will enable a safe learning environment, and will provide children with nutritious meals during the day.
