Continuing the success of the first We Ring the Bell program, which was held in Do Nhan primary and secondary school in Tan Lac in March 2017, We Ring the Bell 2018 was organized at Ngoc My A primary school.

We Ring the Bell welcomed the participation of the leaders of the Tan Lac District Department of Education and Training, Department of Labour, War Invalids and Social Affairs, School Management Board, teachers, students, and 06 children with disabilities and their parents.


In order to encourage the children, MACDI donated 06 gifts to 06 children with disabilities. At the same time, 100% of the students in the school signed a commitment to the protection, assistance, sharing, and integration of children with learning disabilities at school. The children were very happy and eager to join in.

All of them rang the bell together, showing the commitment, unanimity, and willingness to achieve the goal of the campaign. All of the people (students, caretakers, parents, teachers, etc.) understood the program’s meaning.


Children and their parents took part in the program

By doing this, MACDI celebrated the ideal that all children, especially children with disabilities, could attend school. We also wanted to inspire the children, their parents, and teachers to know how to take care and support their children’s physical and mental growth.

Hopefully, the campaign could attract the attention and support of all of the people and overcome their complexity. We want to delivery the message that all of our children have the right to attend school, to be educated, and to fulfill their dreams.
