One hundred needy primary pupils in the districts of Cai Rang and Phong Dien in Can Tho City were on Monday awarded scholarships worth VND1 dong each as part of the scholarship program ‘For your future’.

The scholarship program has been co-organized by Manulife Vietnam and the Saigon Times Foundation (STF) under the Saigon Times Group for the first time with a total of 500 scholarships worth VND500 million.

The two organizations last Friday gifted 150 scholarships to underprivileged pupils in HCMC and will continue to hand over scholarships to pupils in Danang and Hanoi on Wednesday and Friday respectively.

Dao Van Dong, a representative of the company, confirmed to the Daily that Manulife’s investment will ensure local social sustainable development, especially in the area of education. The company has contributed over VND10 billion to such community activities since 1999.
