School Construction
Primary Schools

EMW builds primary schools in Vietnam to create a healthy, safe, and suitable atmosphere for studying to give children in poor and impoverished areas better life opportunities by giving them the essential educational tools to help them succeed. Over the past 20 years, EMW has built over 300 schools in Vietnam.

EMW's School Construction program replaces old, rundown classrooms with new functional, ventilated, well-lit and spacious classrooms at primary schools to give impoverished and underpriveleged students a chance to learn in a safe and encouraging environment. The primary school program benefits children aged 6-11.

All classrooms constructed use a standard EMW construction design and are equipped with tables, chairs, electrical systems, anti-glare chalk boards, lights and fans. Each school is also provided with access to clean water and good sanitation. 

Program Goals

  • Provide schools with the facilities to conduct all-day classes to improve the quality of teaching and learning for both teachers and students.
  • Raise schools’ awareness of the importance of classroom size, natural and man-made lighting and ventilation, anti-glare chalkboards, and furniture with sufficient distance between tables and benches for each age group in creating a healthy and safe environment in which students can learn.
