Brother donates books gathered by employees and renovates a library
In July 2018, Brother International (Vietnam) Co., Ltd. (BIC(V)) donated books to a junior high school in the Mekong Delta region, located to the southwest of Ho Chi Minh City, and renovated its library.
Many of the children of this junior high school do not attend school because they place a priority on helping with housework and so forth, and the teachers of this school visit all families of their students every year to encourage them to go to school. With the aim of enhancing the book collection of the school library and thus helping as many children as possible get interested in learning, BIC(V) employees brought books for donation and enlisted their friends and BIC(V)'s distributors to join in their effort. As a result of this, more than 350 books in a variety of fields, such as history, geography, literature, were gathered and presented to the school. In addition, to renovate the decrepit library, approximately 70 individuals, including the employees of BIC(V) and its distributors and the school teachers, together repainted the wall and door beautifully and set up new bookshelves inside the library. The donated books were classified by category and arranged on the bookshelves.
On the new library with a wide range of books, the principal of the school expressed her appreciation to the BIC(V) employees who renovated the library, saying that children were very happy with the new library.
BIC(V) will always consider how to contribute to its community and continuously support the schools located there.
