Blue Dragon - Hanoi
A project of 4th Grade Students in Primary School
The "Blue Dragon" project supports street children in Vietnam. Every May, the school organises a swimming gala for 4th grade students as a part of this venture, whereby parents can donate money per lane swum by their children. The donations are used to pay for swimming lessons for street children in Hanoi. Many children in this area perish by drowning because they have never had the chance to learn how to swim.
Once a year, the head of the organisation "Blue Dragon" visits GESS together with a child that has received support. This gives the 4th grade students the chance to directly ask questions and find out more about the life of street children in Hanoi.
