Funded by Samsung C&T Corporation (Samsung C&T) and organized by Habitat for Humanity Vietnam (Habitat Vietnam), the project aims to improve the quality of life through housing, water and sanitation facilities provision and disaster resilience for people in Phu Cuong Commune and Na Mao Commune, Dai Tu District, Thai Nguyen Province. Accordingly, some 3,000 people within Samsung Village #7  will benefit from the project. Hereby, 90 low-income households will have access to improved housing condition and WASH facilities[2]. The project also promotes Housing Support Services to build community-resilience against natural disasters to more than 510 villagers and homeowners. Schools and community at the commune level will also benefit from WASH facilities (3 latrines, 2 water systems) and receive training for capacity building about WASH. It is expected that a training session on WASH will be provided for around 600 community villagers while  4 awareness-raising events about this theme will be held at schools. Thanks to the establishment of community-led group, the community will also be able to enhance their capacity and awareness on domestic waste management and save the environment.
