Tran Kim Nga, CEO of Vietnam Beverage Co., Ltd. said, “This is the first time I’m partaking in this meaningful event. It filled me with joy to see the bright faces of the students when they were granted the scholarships. Though their financial value is not very high, I believe that these scholarships can encourage them for their future learning and work.”
VIR’s Editor-in-chief, Le Trong Minh, emphasised that “this year’s programme is special, as many students and their families had to face the challenges imposed by the pandemic.” Speaking at the event, Minh also expressed his hopes that “these small gifts will help to step-by-step reduce the negative impact of the children’s difficult circumstances and motivate them to strive for a better future.”

Being a diamond sponsor from the beginning, Vingroup’s vice chairman of the company’s Management Board, Le Khac Hiep, has always been supporting and participating in many these charity activities to help young students from remote coastal areas to mountainous provinces facing poverty and extraordinary difficulties.
Over the past 14 years, the prestigious VIR’s golf tournament Swing for the Kids gathered more than VND17.5 billion ($760,000) to provide over 16,000 scholarships to disadvantaged students, build IT classrooms with new computers, and upgrade numerous schools in over 40 provinces and cities across the country. As a much-anticipated charity sports activity organised every spring, the tournament brings further opportunities and hope for the future for Vietnamese students.
Towards the end of the event, VIR’s Minh said, “I sincerely thank the local authorities for helping us to organise the ceremony and supporting our efforts to contribute to a healthy and cheerful youth for these children. We hope that in the coming years, we will further be able to support the community with the help of our kind-hearted sponsors.”
