With the mission “We strive to better the communities in which we work”, SSI has been maintaining a harmony in the interests of shareholders, customers, and the community. SSI has proactively developed intellectual and physical education programs for young generations and joined the community in building a better society.
For education development, SSI focuses on below activities:
- School building projects
Since 2007, SSI has built 10 schools in the Northern region to assist with the development education therein. The school are all located in key areas to which students have better access.
On a yearly basis, SSI visits the schools and provides timely funds for expansion so that continued schooling can be provided for the country’s future generations.
In the case of Bac Ha Lower and Upper Secondary High Boarding School for Ethnic Minorities alone, after launching in 2010, the number of students at the school has increased and stabilized, thus making continued contributions to education development.

- NDH Scholarship Fund
SSI defines a developed society as a society based on knowledge and kindness. The company and the NDH Scholarship Foundation continued to award scholarships to needy students with excellent academic performance. 30 selected students from Foreign Trade University, Banking Academy, University of Science, Hanoi Medical University, Hanoi Law University and Academy of Finance continued to be granted scholarships to pursue their career orientations. They will contribute to the development of society with their knowledge and will, in their turn, support other needy people like themselves, thanks to which kindness will be spread to later generations.
- Talent development and engagement
Through years, SSI supported many programs hosted by students studying in the US to help them develop into outstanding human resources for Vietnam in the future. In addition to the funding of community engagement exchanges and activities held by Vietnamese students in the US, SSI also provided funds and sent its senior managers to panel discussions on career orientation in order to equip the youngsters with the right perception of career choices.
- Education support for disadvantaged areas
SSI paid special attention to fostering education in difficult areas in its wish to contribute to nurturing future generations for the country. SSI collaborated with medical practitioners at Cardiovascular Department - Bach Mai Hospital and Cardiovascular Center - Hanoi Medical University Hospital to give gifts and school supplies as well as perform medical examination and deliver free medicine to pupils at nursery, primary and secondary schools in Hong An and Xuan Truong villages, Bao Lac rural district, Cao Bang province. We also coordinated with the People’s Public Security Newspaper to present bicycles, gifts and scholarships to disadvantaged children in many provinces, which helped to keep them motivated in their study.

SSI has long been contributing long-term and sustainable support to Vietnam’s implementation of the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals (MDG) and poverty reduction strategy. SSI provided material and intangible support to people living in disadvantaged areas nationwide, contributing to hunger eradication, poverty reduction and sustainable development.
