The event, jointly held by the Vietnam Youth Federation, the Ministry of Education and Training, the Committee for Ethic Affairs, and Thien Long Group, was attended by Politburo member, Secretary of Party Central Committee (PCC), and Head of PCC’s Commission for Communication and Education Vo Van Thuong.
The programme aimed to honour ethnic minority teachers who have achieved excellent working performance and received high appreciation from parents, teachers and local people despite working in remote and disadvantaged areas.
From 82 nominees across the country, the organising board selected 63 teachers from 26 ethnic minority groups, including six individuals from ethic minority groups with very small populations.
During the programme, the honourees were each presented with a certificate of merit and a VND10 million saving book.
The Thien Long Group also donated VND100 million for the construction of a school house at Xuan Le Kindergarten in Thuong Xuan District, Thanh Hoa Province.
Earlier the same day, the honoured teachers also received the ‘For the development cause of ethnic groups’ insignia at a meeting hosted by the Government’s Committee for Ethnic Affairs.
