|Second School Built by HALO in Bao Lam - Saturday, March 07, 2009|
This little pre-school is the second one HALO has built in the Bao Lam area. The government will not allow the children in the government schools until they have been to pre-school - so we (HALO) are making sure that all the children in that area will be able to go to school. This one was built with the kindness of Dick and Anne Kazan.. The problem is that the ethnic minorities don't usually go to school until the first grade and they are already behind and it is very hard for them to catch up. That is why they need the pre-school. This building was completed March 7, 2009. It actually cost $30,000. The ages of the students is about 3-5 years old - children will learn reading , writing - and how to stay clean. We have also sent 7 personal computers - for some of the older children. (View Images of Bao Lam school
