TİKA Supports Transportation for Vietnamese Students

Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TİKA), in cooperation with the An Phu Women’s Union and An Giang Islamic Community based in Vietnam, distributed bicycles to 300 students to contribute to solving the transportation problem faced by Vietnamese students.

As the school attendance rate of girls from low-income families is low, social problems such as children starting school late to contribute to the family’s budget and marrying at an early age are arising. One of these social problems is the “transportation problem”. Especially in rural areas, girls who do not have access to public transportation cannot attend school and are employed at an early age.

The right to access education, one of the fundamental human rights, has become possible for many students thanks to TİKA’s project.

“I don’t have to walk to school anymore”

A 14-year-old Vietnamese, Nguyen Truc, expressed that she is attending the 6th grade and walks for hours every day to go to school. Saying that she got a bicycle thanks to TİKA’s project, Nguyen stated that she is really glad as she will not have to walk to school anymore. She also expressed that the bicycle saves her time, allowing her to help her family with household chores.

Nguyen said, “I don’t have to walk to school anymore and this saves me time. So, we can help our families with the housework.”
