Supporting Education in Vietnam

Featured Article

On Jan. 15, Monsanto Fund announced a pledge of VND 3.2 billion in partnership with the non-governmental organization Room to Read to improve literacy and gender equality for thousands of children in rural communities in Vietnam. Through this partnership, we will be able to improve education and literacy of more than 60,000 children of Vietnamese farmers.

Monsanto’s funding is going to two major programs, Girls’ Education and Literacy.

In Girls’ Education program, we are equipping 175 girls from low-income families in the rural community with the necessary financial support and skills to succeed in school and beyond through mentors, tutors and life skills training.

In the Literacy program, our funding will help to foster love for and habit of reading among estimated 62,290 primary school children through establishment of eight school libraries and the publication of two children’s books.

Monsanto and Room to Read announced the pledge at the Nhi Truong C School. The photographs below are from the announcement program at the school.
