Solar power for Vietnam
to forge environmental interest
among leaders of the future
Aeon has donated to ten Vietnamese junior high schools
Since 2009, the Aeon Environmental Foundation has undertaken an initiative to donate solar power generating systems to junior high schools aiming to raise awareness and spread the use of renewable energy. With a view of providing educational opportunity for students, the Foundation has so far donated to fifteen schools in Japan and ten schools in Malaysia after expanding the project’s reach to the ASEAN nations from last year. This year, we expand our reach to the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. On April 23rd, a ceremony was held commemorating the donation of a solar power generating system to Tan Nhut Secondary School in Ho Chi Minh City.
With the rising demand for electricity due to its economic growth, Vietnam is currently experiencing an electricity shortage. In response, the Foundation decided to donate the system to a total of ten schools in the country, which is geographically suitable for solar power generation. Aeon will continue to pursue its initiatives to preserve water and greenery for the next generation.
