Tan Thanh awarded the second container library in Dong Thap province in 2019
On September 7, Tan Thanh Company in collaboration with businesses of the Young Business Association carried out the journey donating the second container library to My Hoa 1 Primary School, My Hoa 1 Commune, Thap Muoi District, Dong Thap Province. The Container library performed the mission of bringing knowledge to children in remote and difficult areas who did not have many opportunities to interact with books and newspapers.
The role and core values of container libraries in the educational environment.
In addition to the role of transporting and storing goods, Tan Thanh has always created many different forms to maximize containers’ function. A container can be a home, toilet, office, cafe shop, mobile kiosks…. In addition, containers also play a very important role for the education sector, when it is renovated to be a library storing a huge "treasure" of knowledge for generations of the future of the country.
"In terms of ten years, plant trees; if in terms of 100 years, teach the people” aims to spread the value of reading, form a reading culture, improve living skills as well as orient personality for young children. Tan Thanh hopes that the container library will create a healthy learning and play environment and a place that can stimulate creativity, stimulate reading excitement, and explore new horizons of knowledge for children after class hours.
What makes a container library different?
The library is made from a 40 feet container. With very unique and impressive inside and outside designs, it attracted more pupils than a traditional library did. Tan Thanh hopes that the container library will create a healthy learning and play environment and a place that can stimulate creativity, stimulate reading excitement, and explore new horizons of knowledge for children after class hours.
Especially and most importantly, it was equipped with more than 2,500 reference books, textbooks, scientific knowledge, history - traditional education, Vietnamese literature, foreign literature, living skills.... It was also equipped with a full range of facilities and equipment such as: air-conditioner, tables, chairs, bookshelves, ..
During this time, our project is to award 20 container libraries to schools in disadvantaged areas across the country, with a total budget of about VND 4.75 billion. Tan Thanh hopes that the project will soon complete its mission of bringing knowledge to pupils, contributing to the development of the country.
