But in some remote, mountainous parts of the country, the festive spirit is missing. For many teachers and students, going to school is still an everyday struggle and a celebration would seem out of place.

Thanh Nien has visited some of the poorest kindergartens and primary schools in northern Vietnam, where many teachers have fought poverty and solitude of their own, to make sure no child is left behind.

 

Other kindergartens visited include Han Nang Kindergarten in Pa Cheo Commune, Bat Xat District, Lao Cai Province, Nhiu Co San Kindergarten in Sang Ma Sao Commune, Bat Xat District and Ta Lo San Primary School in Sen Thuong Commune, Muong Nhe District, Dien Bien Province
