Lien Chau Commune is an agricultural commune of Yen Lac District, Vinh Phuc Province with an area  of 8,56 square kilometers, a population of 9,200 people, and a  population density of over 850 people/ km². Lien Chau Commune was honoured to be chosen as one of the three role model communes for the new rural implementation programme.


The new kindergarten is one of the important elements of the local education system, particularly as the old one, built in  the 1980s’, had deteriorated with age, and as a result of the rising pre-school education demand of Lien Chau Commune and a limited Government budget. Consequently the Communal People’s Committee called for donations from local and out-of-province donors to build  a kindergarten in keeping with the teaching and learning standards of the area and capable of  promoting its tradition of study and educational attainment.

Hoang Long and Hoan Vu JOC’s are two petroleum companies jointly operated by their Vietnam shareholder PetroVietnam Exploration and Production Corporation (PVEP of PetroVietnam) and their Foreign Partners SOCO (United Kingdom), PTTEP (The Kingdom of Thailand) and OPECO (United States) . HLHVJOC is currently the second biggest oil and gas operator in Vietnam with the Te Giac Trang and Ca Ngu Vang Fields offshore Vietnam. Supporting the Government’s socialisation programme for educational and new rural establishment, the JOCs, from their establishment, have made donations to construct many schools, medical clinics,  rehabilitation centres, bridges and roads with overall donations  amounting to US$ 2 million.
