DuPont Vietnam recently launched a Community Outreach Program "Online Teaching Aid Library for Primary and Secondary Schools" at An Giang University located at the southern region of Vietnam. Underlining as the first of its kind introduced in Vietnam, this program integrates two programs to upgrade the capacities of An Giang University library by installing the Learning Management System and an online teaching aid library for high school students. The programs enhance the accessibility of local teachers and students to teaching and learning resources as well as optimize the power of the internet to expand learning opportunities and scope. To date, the number of visits is already over 80,000.
"We really appreciate the full support of DuPont during two consecutive years of 2004-2005 to make this program possible. The benefits of this modern and visual method of acquiring knowledge have been noticeably acclaimed that it creates greater educational opportunity for Mekong Delta communities," said Professor Vo-Tong Xuan, Rector of An Giang University.
Mr. Veera Kwanloetchit, Country Manager of DuPont Vietnam, said, "The program contributes to the development of the knowledge-based society for Vietnamese people. It exemplifies the commitment of DuPont to corporate social responsibility."
