The Japanese government has provided US$245,000 in non-refundable aid for two projects that will upgrade two primary schools in the northern provinces of Hung Yen and Thai Binh, Vietnam News Agency reported Tuesday.
The two schools in Nhat Tan and Thai Hong communes will get more than US$122,000 each to build new classrooms.
The Nhat Tan Commune Primary School in Hung Yen was built in the 1960s and its 10 classrooms are in deteriorating condition, threatening the safety of students.
The project will build eight new classrooms for the school.
The Thai Hong Commune Primary School in Thai Binh, also built in the 1960s, has eight classrooms that will be rebuilt with the Japanese aid.
