This is one of the exemplary projects demonstrating the support of EVN extended to Lai Chau province under Resolution 30a of the Government.

For many years, in Mu Sang commune, there is only one primary school built in 2008 from various funding sources. The school site is located on steep hillside and is unable to arrange the premises for classrooms, boarding houses, playgrounds for teaching and learning activities for the semi-boarding students in the commune. The road conditions are very bad, many students in the villages live far from school, affecting the quality of education and the attendance rate. With the desire to create all favorable conditions to help students from ethnic minorities in remote areas in Lai Chau province go to school and improve the quality of education in the locality in the spirit of the Resolution 30a, EVN sponsored the construction of Mu Sang semi-boarding ethnic minority primary school.
Mu Sang semi-boarding ethnic minority primary school has a total investment cost of VND 15 billion. The project commenced in March 2021, spaciously built on an area of about 5,000m2, meeting the teaching and learning requirements of 413 primary school students (of which 350 semi-boarding students).
After more than 9 months of construction, Mu Sang semi-boarding ethnic minority primary school project has been put into use with the aim of meeting education needs, improving education quality and education environment for staff, teachers and students of the school, contributing to increasing the rate of children going to school in Phong Tho district. On this occasion, Vietnam Electricity and the People's Committee of Lai Chau province planted souvenir trees in the schoolyard and launched the New Year tree-planting movement in 2022. In addition, EVNNPC awarded 50 scholarships, each worth VND 1 million for students of Mu Sang semi-boarding ethnic minority primary school.
