VTV.vn - Fuji Xerox in collaboration with Save the Children has launched a program to provide learning materials to underprivileged children with limited education living in remote areas of central and northern Vietnam.

This is the first industry collaboration by Fuji Xerox with Save the Children, one of the globe’s leading international non-government organizations that works to resolve education disparity among children. This project is an expansion of Fuji Xerox’s corporate flagship community engagement program aimed at educating future generations by leveraging the best of its printing technology and the spirit of its people in improving lives in disadvantaged communities across the Asia Pacific region.

At Fuji Xerox, corporate social responsibility is synonymous with corporate management said Mr Hiroshi Shimoe, president of Fuji Xerox Vietnam in connection with the launch of the program.

“I’m delighted to collaborate with Save the Children to help 2,000 underprivileged local children to take the first step in learning. These children live in mountainous areas in rural cities. Through our project, I hope they can have a head start in learning.”

“This is not a one-time corporate giving, I hope to continue the success of the – For the Children of Tomorrow – project in the future,” added Mr Shimoe.

The contents of the books are developed and provided by Save the Children in the Vietnamese language. The reading books are printed using Fuji Xerox’s production printing technology and printed by the Vietnamese company of Bao Ngoc Co. Ltd.

The learning materials are targeted to cultivate the joy of learning for children aged three to six years old. There are 11 different story books in a set. Each book is highly visual and interactive, suited for pre-school learning.

These stories teach knowledge of the world we live in and core values such as respect for elderly, cleanliness and honesty. Roughly 5,500 of these books will be distributed to schools located in the Van Chan District in Yen Bai Province and the Tay Giang District in Quang Nam Province.

One of the missions of Save the Children is to achieve lasting change in the lives of children, said Ms Duong Le, project representative from Save the Children Vietnam.

Save the Children is pleased to find a company like Fuji Xerox to start a unique community engagement project that can reach out to the most remote places to create reading habits, develop reading skills and Vietnamese vocabulary as well as enhance school readiness among pre-primary children of ethnic minorities.

“Providing basic early childhood education is vital to empower children to protect themselves against exploitation,” said Ms Duong Le.

Reading books to the children

The launch event was held in Yen Bai Province; where it welcomed children at pre-primary and primary education, teachers and parents for a day of fun learning together with Fuji Xerox employees.

Fuji Xerox Vietnam has been actively engaging employees in the community engagement activities since its establishment in 2010, and is now expanding these activities to employees in Hanoi (Capital, North Vietnam) and Danang (Central Vietnam).

This meets one of the corporate social responsibility goals, which is to enhance employee engagement across its offices in Vietnam and raise their awareness on the commitment in supporting the community as a corporate citizen, noted President Shimoe of Fuji Xerox Vietnam.
