Earlier this month some of our wonderful British International School Hanoi teachers participating in a FUN RUN in aid of School on the Boat.
School on the Boat is an NGO, based in Hanoi. The main objective of the organization is to give access to education to disadvantaged children living along the Red River and in the Long Bien area in Hanoi, helping to finance the children’s school fees in 7 different public schools. Since School on the Boat was created, 30 children have been able to enter the public school. In parallel of this objective but in the same frame, the organization insures an individual follow up of the children in different areas.
Health: School on the Boat participates in the psychological follow up and to the payment of the health expenses of the children and organizes a monthly rice distribution.
Monthly activity: School on the Boat organizes monthly activities in order to enable a global development of the children through cultural, sport and art activities.
Tutoring program: The tutoring program has been created in order to support the children in their schooling. Every night, they can come for tutoring classes to do their homework and overcome the difficulties they face at school.
As you can see from the photographs, it is good to exercise the body as well as the mind and at the same time, British International School Hanoi has shown again how much we care about our local community.
