Schools built with VND2.3 billion (US$126,000) donated by US aircraft maker Boeing opened in major Mekong Delta hubs on Monday.

The Thanh Tien 2 Primary School in the city of Can Tho’s Vinh Thanh District and Dao Huu Canh Kindergarten in An Giang Province were built in cooperation with the East Meets West Foundation, a US-based NGO.

Boeing has sponsored many projects in Vietnam and has donated more than $1 million toward building schools and $150,000 for natural disaster relief activities.

For the last 21 years, as one of the largest nongovernmental organizations in Vietnam, East Meets West has invested more than $55 million in health, clean water, education, and community infrastructure programs throughout the country.
