Due to the fact that most of the attendants are children, the organizers have worked out plans to ensure the security and safety of attendants, especially children. The organizers hope to create a series of activities that will help children to get together and have fun; also to have the chance to better understand Vietnamese cultural values, traditional handicrafts and games.
On behalf of the Center, Mr. Le Xuan Kieu said: “This is the first time our center has held a series of practical activities for the youth in Hanoi and other parts of the nation during the summer. This event will last for 3 months, and we hope that the youth attending this event will have a great time and get valuable experience in terms of traditional cultural values and life experience”.
