Trung Trac Primary School is located in Trung Trac Commune, Van Lam District, Hung Yen Province. Trung Trac commune is one of the industrialized areas of the region, where it is close to many industrial zones. The factories nearby provide a lot of jobs for the locals and also attract a large supply of workers from other regions. Aside from manufacturing jobs, residents are engaged in providing services and farming. Many students of Trung Trac Primary School come from the families of factory workers or farmers who have low income, and they are still facing many financial difficulties to make ends meet.
Students and teacher at Trung Trac Primary School use bottled water for their daily drinking requirements. Periodically, the school will order 20 liters bottles from the local service providers. Although these water bottles are produced by local facilities with poor quality, the school doesn’t have another choice because they cannot afford better quality water. The families who have students at the school contribute to the drinking budget, which is still a significant burden to them, especially to those with low incomes.
