Students demonstrated to the group the safety importance of helmets, seatbelts, zebra crossings and rumble strips through skits and interactive sessions with AIP Foundation staff.

It was an opportunity to combine learning English and road safety – two skills that are essential for young people in Vietnam.

“Traffic safety education is essential to keeping Vietnam’s youth safe and smart, and ensures that they will be a responsible generation of road users,” said Alison Ball, Director of the British Council HCMC.

Kind soul runs class for mentally challenged kids

QĐND – Sunday, May 02, 2010, 21:32 (GMT+7)

It is eight in the morning and some 30 children with learning difficulties are in Nguyen Thi Quynh Nga’s house, trying to learn the basics of the Vietnamese language.

Outside the class — in Vinh Long City in the Mekong Delta – stand the parents of some of the children, watching their children make progress. Some have tears in their eyes when they hear their children say “father” and “mother” with great effort.

Tam, the mother of a girl named Thuy Nguyen, weeps with joy when her child crosses her arms and says her first ever complete sentence after returning home from class.

Nguyen’s last child, who is mentally challenged, can talk to her mother in a respectful manner since joining the class and help her with housework.

Nga’s class, a decade old, has helped many children integrate into their community.

Most of their parents just wish their children can communicate with others and do some basic tasks for themselves, Nga explains.

Learning the language is just a secondary task while the primary objective is to help the students become confident about integrating into the community, communicate with other people, and be aware of their surroundings and independent.

She organizes it like a real classroom with regular tests and exams — there is a monitor, a deputy monitor, and group leaders who report to her every morning on attendance.

Children getting good grades are given flowers and candies and there are parties every month for children’s birthdays.

Sweet outcome

The children usually take a month of painstaking effort to learn, memorize, spell, and write a word.

Nga holds their hand to help them write the letters and says words again and again for them to repeat after her.

Her efforts have borne fruit — many of the students can write their parents’ names or say words properly.

Though the children are still not like their normal counterparts, their gradual improvement in doing simple math, communication, and doing simple tasks has brought great pleasure to their parents.

In 1992 Nga became a teacher at Chu Van An primary school in Vinh Long and found that many children with mental and physical disabilities had to stay away from school.

She began her class for such children seven years later but had to call on families to persuade people to send their children there. There were 15 students in the beginning.

There are now around 30 children but Nga has refused financial assistance from the local government and depends on the goodwill of donors.

Nga also runs a free class for poor people.

She says teaching these unfortunate people makes her life fulfilling and meaningful.

Nhon Hoi Economic Zone will create jobs for thousands of people and change the province’s economic structure into one of industrialization and modernization.

The province will also focus on extending its export market and enhancing technology and advanced management skills to contribute to the local budget and improve people’s living standards.

Chairman of the Quy Nhon City People’s Committee, Thai Ngoc Bich, said the city is focusing on building Quy Nhon into a modern, civilized and green city.

The local government will carry out projects of Bui Thi Xuan, Phu Tai and Long My industrial parks, while roads linking the city to new urban areas will be built, he added.

In 1986, Quy Nhon Town was enlarged and recognized as a city of Binh Dinh Province. It received the title of “National Second-Class City” in 1998.

This year’s honor is seen as a step towards further development of the city in becoming a major economic area in the south-central region.
