The programme's donations, worth nearly $17,000 in total, include the renovation of lighting systems and the improvement of hygiene conditions, as well as digital equipment to support the learning efforts of local teachers and students.

“New LEDs have been installed in our class- and meeting rooms. In addition, the company also provided us with computers and printers for our digital learning room. The donations have provided significant support to us, helping create a safe and supportive learning environment for our students,” said Pham Thi Tin, principle of Nguyen Trai Elementary School.

“AES Mong Duong has been our long-term partner and true supporter,” Tin added.

As part of the support programme, the drainage system and washing area at the Mong Duong High School were renovated and are now in use daily by more than 500 students.

The activities have made a lasting difference and contributed to improving the quality of life of more than 200,000 people in neighbouring communities in Cam Pha city, Quang Ninh province.

“As our school re-opened during the pandemic, we place at utmost importance on safety and hygiene, and luckily the renovation has been completed right before the kids got back to school. Thus, AES Mong Duong's support has been very meaningful to us,” said Duong Thi Bich Mai, principle of Mong Duong High School.

The donation is part of AES Mong Duong’s continuous support for Quang Ninh province's battle against the pandemic. In early May, the company donated nearly $21,000 to local communities and related agencies to support their efforts in fighting COVID-19.

“Our mission is to improve people’s lives in the communities we operate in. I am happy that the support will enhance the safety of all of them and hope it will motivate students and teachers when they come back to school amid the pandemic,” said David Stone, CEO of AES Mong Duong.

Since 2012, 130 CSR initiatives with a total value of more than $600,000 have been implemented by the company, focusing on the four main pillars health, education, livelihood, and infrastructure. The activities have made a lasting difference and contributed to improving the quality of life of more than 200,000 people in neighbouring communities in Cam Pha city, Quang Ninh province.

AES Mong Duong Power Company Ltd., a subsidiary of global power supplier AES Corporation, has successfully developed and arranged to finance the landmark Mong Duong 2 Power Project with a capacity of 1,200MW and a total investment of approximately $2.1 billion.

The project is one of Vietnam’s largest coal-fired power projects, representing approximately 2.6 per cent of the country’s current installed capacity.
