In 2016, Dantri helped build a staff room and classroom at Bat Dai Son Primary School in Ha Giang Province. This is the 15th bridge Dantri helped build for disadvantaged people. The 22-metre-long and 3.5-metre-wide bridge cost VND500m (USD21,600) with funds donated by the TH Group. Construction started in July and completed after five months.

"The bridge connects Khuoi Luon and Chien Thang villages. The new bridge will make travel easier and much safer for both teachers and children," Nguyen Luong Phan, deputy Editor-in-chief of Dantri/Dtinews, said at the ceremony.

On the same day, 55 children in nurseries and primary schools in Khuoi Luon and Chien Thang villages were given milk boxes and school supplies by the foundation and the TH Group. Dantri News gave away coats and shirts donated by the May 10 Corporation and a kind reader in Hanoi.
