It has also carried out other community projects such as digging wells to supply clean water in the country’s poor rural areas.

Cargill recently built two schools in Central Quang Tri and Northern Nam Dinh provinces and plans to build another in Quang Tri in August.

Stoney Su, chief representative of Cargill Vietnam, said the school building program is providing quality education for about 14,000 students a year.

The Cargill Cares Council plans to build 100 schools by 2020.
