Roads built for more success and better situation
For a long time ago, the narrow, slippery and muddy road hindered adversely from children from school and Khmer villagers from production and business in An Nghiep commune, An My village, Soc Trang province. Besides of difficulty in travel, the local people had to carry water from river and canals for daily drinking and cooking. The Self-Help Group (SHG) becomes aware of the convenience of a dry and clean road and water security, so 11 households including six project members and five non-project members together contributed US $110 for matching with US $750 of Heifer Viet Nam (HVN) to build a 120-meter road and a pumping well for the entire community. They, hand on hand, donated the labor and utilized available materials such as trunks and leaves of coconuts, which helps to save US $35 to build up along the road.
Meanwhile, US $2,800.00 which is half of the SHG and villagers and half of HVN, is used to build a 500-meter muddy and flooded road in Xuong Thanh B commune, Thanh Phu district, Ben Tre province. The flooding season is a great adversity for the local people in travel, farming and business. And, Mr. Henri Sitorus, Country Director of Heifer Indonesia, during his stay in Viet Nam for the co-mentoring trip in last December, took part in the special event and by his hand, helped to build the road with the group. “I’m very glad to join this important opportunity. I would like to say “chuc mung” (congratulations). The road will bring the whole community together, to get better condition and to new situations.” – quoted from his speech on the opening.
With hope, more roads and wells of fresh and clean water will be built to bring health, good condition and success to the community. Besides, the roads will also take all people close together for unity and solidarity. The roads also prove the fact that together, local people can gain successes and opportunities.
