The center, powered by solar energy, is a novel and integrated model functioning as a clean and free water supplier with a capacity of 6,000 liters per day, refreshment and grocery shop, and internet access unit.

The center is hoped to help trigger more community-based initiatives; for instance, skill training or online training for the locals, and generate more added values to this ASEAN winning tourist destination.

This project is one of the 4 centers to be erected in 2018, which will finally reach the company’s goal to set up totally 13 centers across the country.

“The Ekocenters in Vietnam have proved their impacts by continuously bringing about multiple benefits to the communities such as water supply, promotion of energy use awareness, climate change coping, and economic empowerment to local women via start-up trainings,” said Mr. Sanket Ray, Coca-Cola Vietnam’s Executive Director.

Cau Ngoi Thanh Toan, a famous community-based tourism model in Hue, won the ASEAN prize in 2017

At the opening ceremony, Coca-Cola and Hue Xanh social enterprise also presented certificates to the local females who attended a start-up training previously organized, and offered 100 new-year gift bags to the commune’s poor households.
