Project coordinator

Thu is an HR Officer at United Insurance Company (UIC).

Dwelling on the images of the children with those shining pure eyes, Thu was the first person to approach Phieng Canh mountainous village (Moc Chau district, Son La province) in the first stage of the project, gather all team members together and initiate the idea of school construction for kids. She named the project with a rustic, simple yet intimate name: “Schools For Kids”.

As a thoughtful, meticulous person, Thu is in charge of working with the local authorities (at commune, village and school level) to obtain construction permission, to learn about the local customs and to call for help and support from the village residents to carry out the project. Thu has always been engaged and participated in volunteer programs, especially programs that target children in difficult circumstances.
