A group of 25 high school students from Canada are about to finish building a kitchen for a nursery in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue where lunch will be provided to more than 100 kids.
The West Island College students have helped transport materials to build the 20-square-meter kitchen at the Huong Toan nursery since March 28. Some practiced building skills under the guidance of local workers.
They also donated VND100 million (US$ 5,000) to fund the construction.
The nursery, located in Huong Tra District, a small town of the central province, has not had a kitchen to prepare lunches for its 100 students until now
The children, many of whom live far away from the school, had to carry hurriedly-prepared lunch boxes with them or go back home around noon for lunch.
Nguyen Vinh, a tour guide of the Canadian group, said that students from the Canadian school travel on volunteer trips six times a year.
