Truong Vinh Ky La Salle Secondary School
In the central highlands of Vietnam, there is a desperate need for inclusive, high-quality secondary education. To meet this need, the Truong Vinh Ky Secondary School has recently become operational. The primary objectives of the school are to eliminate the stigma suffered by the local Montagnard population – a minority group that lives in a situation of socio-economic and linguistic marginalization. The school educates students from various cultural groups, promoting mutual respect and exchange between different cultures. In this way, the school will be a catalyst to change the local attitude of discrimination toward the Montagnard people. Providing students with proper training will allow all children to pursue their studies, earn a diploma, and learn skills which will provide an opportunity for future employment.
Of the 800 students attending the school, 50% will be girls
