Kon Kloc Early Childhood Education Centre

Kon Kloc hamlet is a part of a poor rural commune in the northern Dak Ha District, a remote, mountainous part of Vietnam’s central highland, with a population of approximately 6500 people. The living conditions there are difficult.

Because the kindergarten in this hamlet is situated in two old, dilapidated classrooms, the Vietnamese Education Society (VES), a Canadian Charity based out of Saskatchewan is working in conjunction with another organization called East Meet West to build a new Early Education Centre for this community.

CVBF has agreed to work with the VES to complete the construction of this centre.
