LOTTE Department Store, LOTTE School Renovated LOTTE School
In 2009, LOTTE Department Store opened LOTTE Schools in low-income areas of Vietnam by renovating elementary and middle school facilities.
Despite their strong passion for education, except for those who live in major cities, most Vietnamese have little or no access to education. There are not enough schools, facilities, and materials to accommodate all school-age children. After opening its first LOTTE School in 2009 by renovating the classrooms and dormitory at Son Ky Middle School near Da Nang, LOTTE Department Store now supports three LOTTE Schools. It also offers support for the management of rainwater filter systems in low-income areas of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
