All localities are holding swimming classes for children for free. Since the beginning of the summer, 30 classes have been opened for nearly 1,000 children. In order to develop the swimming learning movement and universalize swimming skills, since 2016, Dong Trieu has mobilized more than VND7 billion to install 21 smart swimming pools in all communes and wards. These swimming pools are being used effectively. Dong Trieu plans to open 80 swimming classes for about 2,500 children, striving to increase the rate of children who can swim to 90%.
