NUI TO KINDERGARTEN – TRI TON DISTRICT – AN GIANG PROVINCE
An Giang Province lies in the Mekong Delta in the southwestern part of the country, sharing a border with Cambodia to the northwest. Tri Ton District is the largest District in An Giang Province comprising two towns and 13 rural communes. Being quite mountainous - it is the largest and most populated District in An Giang Province. It is also home to a sizable number of people from ethnic minorities – the Khmer Krom being the largest non-Vietnamese group. The main output is rice crops – also grass cutting, corn and some aquatic products. Tan Chau silk is also famous in his region.
Nui To Kindergarten has one main campus and this site is sufficient – but for only five-year-olds. The other two sub-campuses however are ‘borrowed’ classrooms and merely temporary wooden buildings. Besides being unsafe – there is critically insufficient space for 3 and 4 year olds. 44% of this age group within this commune cannot attend Early Education classes: (80.6% of these children are of Khmer origin).
If a whole new kindergarten was to be built – the two inappropriate sub-campuses would end and ALL children (aged 3 – 5 years) would be able to attend school in one campus alone. Undoubtedly more conducive to heightened learning and development.
