Thanks to new water storage tanks funded as part of the ELCA-funded NEW DEA initiative in northern Vietnam, 250 boarding students in Ta Ba Primary School now have plentiful water for their everyday needs. Thankfully, they no longer have to collect and carry water from far outside their school grounds; nor must they wait in discouraging lines for rationed water for bathing and clothes washing, which is helping students improve their personal hygiene. Finally, students also have enough water for vegetable gardening, which helps them to improve their diet. Altogether, these are very important changes for ethnic minority children and the CWS team is quite proud of their learning and progress.
