Keppel Land is committed to be a responsible corporate citizen, contributing and enriching lives of communities wherever it operates.

With the support of its main contractor for Saigon Centre, Hoa Binh Construction & Real Estate Corporation (Hoa Binh), Keppel Land (Vietnam) pledged a total of VND 180 million (about S$11,500) to An Phu Secondary School, located in Thao Dien Ward 2 in District 2, to support the school’s educational activities and daily operation.

This includes granting a total of VND 70 million (S$4,450) of educational scholarships to 20 underprivileged students who have excelled academically. To create a more conducive learning environment, Keppel Land (Vietnam) and Hoa Binh have also replaced the school’s benches, installed new sinks, provided three new bookshelves and eight exhaust fans in its canteen for better ventilation.

Mr Tran Duc Vinh, headmaster of An Phu Secondary School, said, “We are very grateful to Keppel Land (Vietnam) and Hoa Binh for their generous support. The scholarships will encourage and motivate our students to keep up their good performance.”

Mr Linson Lim, President, Keppel Land (Vietnam), added, “At Keppel Land, we seek to empower lives for sustainable change. In Vietnam, we will continue to focus our efforts on education and create positive and meaningful impact where we operate.”
