Building Bridges

In the remote places of Vietnam, many children are putting themselves in danger to attend school. In the rural areas, students need to cross rivers and streams on perilous loose monkey bridges, or sometimes even inside of plastic bags. Furthermore, the lack of bridges affects local people in their daily life because they find it challenging for them to distribute local products, which leads to poverty.

Without sufficient support, the poor may put their children at the risks of heavy labour jobs or even human trafficking to make ends meet. The most serious consequence is that local residents are suffering very low living standards. Therefore, building bridges in rural areas is an efficient strategy to improve community development, which will contribute to upgrading rural residents’ life quality and children’s safety. Once local products are distributed smoothly thanks to convenience in transportation, rural residents’ will be improved and children’s safety will be remarkably enhanced.
