Vietnamese children aspire to become doctors, teachers

The other careers that young people dream of are teacher, policeman, fashion designer and chef.
Many children want to support people in need when they grow up, such as healing the sick, conveying knowledge or protecting people.
Asked what three things they would do if they became Prime Minister, many children said they would develop the educational sector, help poor people and protect the environment.
The company said this response could have been due to challenges in education in recent years.
Also, more than 50 per cent of the surveyed children said that mathematics was their favourite subject at school, followed by English, computers and science.
Their most enjoyable weekend activity was spending time with their friends or families.
This is the fifth year that Adecco Viet Nam has conducted the survey, which gives an insight into what the Vietnamese workforce of tomorrow thinks about the world they live in and their role in the future.
Tidarat Kanchanawat, Adecco's regional director for Thailand and Viet Nam, said: "The findings help us better understand our children's career dreams. Although they may appear as innocent dreams, they show how our children perceive the world around them and through this survey, we can support them in achieving those dreams."
The survey was also conducted in Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and several other Asian countries.

Fire safety during Tet made a priority

Fire safety during Tet made a priority

HA NOI (VNS) — There is a high risk of fire and explosions during the upcoming Tet (Lunar New Year) holiday, according to the Department of Fire Prevention and Control, Rescue and Salvage.
The warning comes after a series of blazes at markets and apartment buildings nationwide over the past year including serious blasts at Phu Ly Market in northern Ha Nam Province, Cau Ong Lanh Market in HCM City's District 1, Ha Noi-based Quang Minh industrial park and block CT4A of Xa La apartment buildings in Ha Noi's Ha Dong District.
According to the department, the incidents were caused by low levels of humidity which makes materials dry and makes them a fire hazard.
In addition, traders burned votive paper at markets, which is also a fire risk.
Ha Noi is home to many big markets. The municipal People's Committee has directed the Fire Prevention and Fighting Police Department to check fire prevention measures of all markets in the city.
The department will co-operate with local people's committees to suspend the operation of markets where fire safety is not ensured.
To Xuan Thieu, deputy director of the city's Fire Prevention and Fighting Police Department, said that locals and enterprises must raise their fire safety awareness.
He said that owners of production bases and investors and management boards of apartment quarters must maintain fire prevention measures and equipment regularly.
To prepare for Tet, HCM City's Fire Prevention and Fighting Police Department have launched a hotline at (08)-39200996.
The city also published personal telephone numbers of two deputy directors of the department as well as 30 heads and deputy heads of units under the department.
Statistics from the Department of Fire Prevention and Control, Rescue and Salvage showed that last year, there were nearly 2,800 blazes across the country, killing 62 people and injuring 264 people. Total damaged property was up to VND1.5billion (US$66,700).
More safety checks
Meanwhile, in HCM City, the municipal Fire Fighting and Prevention Police Department also plans to conduct more fire-safety inspections at enterprises this year.
"For the upcoming Lunar New Year, the department strongly recommends that every resident, organisation and enterprise become more vigilant about fire threats," the department's director Colonel Le Tan Buu said.
About 1,650 accidents occurred last year because of fires, explosions and rescue events in HCM City, with eight deaths and 46 injuries.
Firefighters rescued 117 people and discovered the bodies of 53 people who had died during the accidents.
Electrical faults were the main cause for 83 per cent of residential fires, which represented 50 per cent of all fires.
"The number of big fires was small. Ninety-five per cent of property losses were private residential fires," Colonel Buu said.
Last year, the department organised 2,200 firefighting and prevention training courses for nearly 65,000 people, and assisted local authorities to set up more 461 local fire fighting and prevention teams with 8,000 members.
The department also conducted fire-prevention investigations at nearly 80,000 organisations, enterprises, apartments and residential areas. They found that half of them were in danger of explosions or fires.
Inspectors found over 9,550 violations and handed out 8,345 fines totalling VND10 billion (US$460,000). Four of the inspected locations were permanently closed, seven were suspended and 33 were given warnings. — VNS

Stunning Vietnamese Children's Book Wins

Stunning Vietnamese Children’s Book Wins Asia-Wide Prize

the first journey 1
When it comes to reading materials for kids, Vietnam is full of small, inexpensive paperbacks, but seldom does the country produce a colorful, high-quality storybook like The First Journey.
Created in just two weeks by author-illustrator team Phung Nguyen Quang and Huynh Kim Lien, the children’s book recently took home the Scholastic Picture Book Award, an Asia-wide honor presented by the National Book Development Council of Singapore and Scholastic Asia. Their unpublished story, filled with dramatic, vivid illustrations of the Mekong, beat out 135 other entries from across the continent.
The First Journey tells the story of An, a young boy who crosses the Mekong Delta for the first time on his way to school, encountering floods, snakes and a mysterious forest with a giant crocodile.
Through workshops and collaborations with Room to Read, a nonprofit organization which works to promote children’s literacy in developing countries around the world, the duo were able to complete the book and submit it to the contest for consideration.
Since winning the honor, Quang and Lien have managed to become independent authors, creating their own high-quality childrens’ books in a country where engaging and age-appropriate reading material is hard to come by.
