In 2010 members of Warriors’ Journey Home visited the Kim Dong Primary School in Vietnam. Supplies were collected by students at Theodore Roosevelt High School in Kent OH.

Kent Ohio’s Theodore Roosevelt’s “Project Vietnam” helped to change the world for the students and teachers at Kim Dong Primary School in Vietnam. The school is located in a rural area of the province, funding for a library was not something that was feasible. Those that participated in the project were truly ambassadors for their school and the City of Kent. Their hard work demonstrated one way that the power of community can be put to use.
