New Opportunities To Khmer Community
         The 6th of May is a special day for some Ko Ko village participants and their families of the project "Improving community’s capacity at Tan Hung commune, Long Phu district, Soc Trang province" (#22-0775-28) because they have been awaiting for six months to receive heifers which they believe would better their lives and community. That is why everybody gets up early in this morning and prepares everything; men cutting grass, cord and children holding pickets on their hands, waiting with excitement for the animal distribution ceremony held in a large yard of the village.
          The ceremony starts with a Khmer music show performed animatedly by these project participants. The local authority representative is committed to their full support and facilitation for best achievements and great impacts of the project. Mrs. Dang Thi Doan Trang, Country Director of Heifer Viet Nam, encourages the beneficiaries to take good advantage of Heifer's support, particularly training courses for their own efficient animal husbandry and to help one another overcome difficulties of their lives. Ms. Phuong, a Self-Help Group leader, representing her group, says, "It’s six months since the project came, we have been trained in 12 Cornerstones, Personal Leadership, PSRP and we have got training courses of planting grass and raising cows. We pledge to implement the project as regulated and comply with groups' regulations, and build saving fund, assist one another to fulfill our duty. I wish all 150 project participants would complete POG after three years". At this event, 47 of 150 participants receive heifers and the others would wait for their turn in upcoming stages.

          On this occasion, the People's Committee of Soc Trang province grants two merit certificates to Heifer Viet Nam and to Mrs. Dang Thi Doan Trang for significant contributions of the organization to improving life quality and income of the people in the province.
