FENV's Sanitary and Water Purification Project for the Remote Elementary School
FENV collaborated with its customer, lululemon, on Vendor Here To Be 2022. The project involves the installation of sanitary and water purification facilities at an elementary school in Bình Phước Province, Vietnam with the aim of providing the students with clean water and comfortable environment while helping them develop sanitary and hygiene awareness.
Though roughly 80% of the schools in Vietnam are equipped with water supply and sanitary facilities, many are not fully utilized or in need of repair. The Bu Gia Map Elementary School has an enrollment size of over 300 students. Despite its restrooms being dated and in insufficient quantity, the overall campus environment is well maintained, which speaks to the attentiveness of the school administration. The project team thus collaborated with a non-profit foundation under XYT to build a clean and safe restroom for the school. The project also helps school children develop sanitation and hygiene awareness through regular maintenance and educational programs.
The construction took place between March and September 2022 and the facility comes with a three-year maintenance and repair service. The improvement will help reduce diarrhea and diseases related to poor sanitary conditions among school children and help them maintain personal and environmental hygiene.
