Young teacher volunteers for remote area

With an unconditional love for their young charges, many young teachers have volunteered to work in schools in remote and mountainous areas in the hope of providing an education to all. 

Nguyen Thi Van at the Thuong Nung kindergarten in northern Thai Nguyen province is one such teacher.

The steep slopes and sharp turns of mountain roads have been kindergarten teacher Nguyen Thi Van’s daily route for a few years now. The Lung Hoai branch of Thuong Nung kindergarten on top of the mountain, is home to the H’Mong ethnic minority people. Van volunteered to come here in her 20s, and run-down classrooms lacking electricity and water weren’t enough to put her off.

After three years, Van has never once regretted leaving the provincial capital to come to the mountains.

Thanks to the endless efforts of Van and her colleagues, children in the furthest areas have been sent to kindergarten.

All kids can go to school, and the number of kindergarten students is increasing every single year. The ceaseless efforts of the teachers contribute to the positive improvements being seen in education quality in remote areas./.VNA
