Sun is for All. We just bring it to You.
Here at Vu Phong, we care about our social and environmental responsibilities by respecting the rights of workers and other stakeholders, making business operations safe and environmentally responsible, and especially, supporting communities around us.
About over 2 million Vietnameses still have no access to electricity, and the quantity of same people all over the world is 1.4 billion. We wish to contribute to changing that.
For those living in remote mountain villages or isolated areas in Vietnam, the lack of electricity makes life a struggle – to live, to study, to work toward a better future. We offer rechargeable solar lights and solar power systems, casting a ray of hope upon hundreds of families and children.
We will continue these meaningful activities because they help to actualize our goal of “Bringing light to the poor children across Vietnam”.
Đạ Mpô Primary School 11/2013
Liêng Srônh is a particularly impoverished commune lying to the west of Đam Rông District, Lam Dong Province, 35 km from the town center. Due to its rugged mountain terrain, transportation is extremely difficult. Almost inhabitants here are ethnic minorities.
Đạ Mpô Primary School is located in Village 5 of this commune, without any road to enter. Dangerous bamboo raft is the only way to arrive at this school. Under such tough conditions, understandably, the national grid cannot reach this area.
In Nov 2013, with supporting of Department of Science and Technology of Lâm Đồng Province, we installed a 1.74kW solar power system which lighted 5 classrooms of this school. Especially, all of 50 LED lamps of this project are made and sponsored by Vu Phong. We really hope this change can make living and educating of teachers here easier.
Lục Lạc Vàng – Golden Cowbell since 01/2015
Since Jan 01, 2015, Vũ Phong has engaged in “Golden Cowbell” – a reality show aiming to help needy families, especially ones whose children are going to school. The show is aired every Sunday with 6 households per episode.
Each of the families is presented a SolarV portable solar lamp made by us besides a cow couple and other gifts of benefactors. The lamp will provide light for children’s learning as well as the family’s working and activities.
During the past year, Vu Phong has donated 327 lamps, which is equivalent to that 327 families, and more than that number of children have a brighter life.
Phước An 3 Primary School 08/2015
Early August 2015, Vu Phong, together with sponsorship of Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (KAERI), Center of Vietnam – Korea Cultural Exchanges, and students from Seoul National University, completed a solar power project at Phước An 3 Primary School, Tuy Phuoc, Binh Dinh.
The project provided a water filter, a tank of 15m3, a solar-grid pump and a 3kW on grid solar power system generating 15kWh per day. Not only did the system cut the electric cost, it also supplied fresh water to more than 300 teachers and students of the school and nearly 1,000 people in the surrounding area.
The D.O.V.E Fund 01/2016
In the early Jan 2016, the D.O.V.E Fund has donated 149 solar lights of Vu Phong to households living in poverty and darkness in Thua Thien Hue and Quang Tri. It is our small effort to help people, especially the children have a better life.
