School opening in rural Vietnam

The organization I'm interning with, Vietnam Veterans of America Foundation, built a school in rural Thai Nguyen Province with the help of the Boeing company. We went there today for the ribbon cutting ceremony. It took over three hours to get there by car and the last part was weaving through mountains and tiny unpaved roads. 

 A village baby I made friends with at the school opening. 
Note the blonde locks sewn into her bandana.

This is only a small percentage of the students at the school.

 The kids wore VVAF hats made for the occasion.
