About 10 miles south of Ho Chi Minh City is the Pouyuen Vietnam Company Limited, a shoe factory that employs 95,000 Vietnamese from the surrounding provinces. These 95,000 employees have over 20,000 children under the age of six. Peter Tsai, the Vice Director of the factory and Tran Thi Lan Huong, a Vietnamese business woman, collaborated and built The Little Sun School near the factory as a day care center for 700 of these children. They have created an environment for children 2 to 6 years of age where they can spend the day learning skills that will give them a better advantage when they begin primary school.
The Little Sun school has been such a success that another school, The Little Flower, will be opened soon to accept 300 more of the children.
