It was a beautiful morning on September 5th, 2018 when we celebrated the first opening ceremony of the new school year in Dak Nong Social Center. A total of 118 children, divided into Grades 1 to 4 of the primary school and a special needs class, will be able to study there. Grade 5 will open next year.
