Vinh Phuc (VNA) – The 2016 Youth Month kicked off at the Ho Chi Minh Square in Vinh Yen city, the northern province of Vinh Phuc, on February 27 with the participation of 3,000 local young people.

Addressing the event, Truong Thi Mai, head of the Party Central Committee’s Mass Mobilisation Commission, expressed her belief that the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union (HCMCYU) will actualise the 12 th National Party Congress’s Resolution soundly, and that young people nationwide will help bring the document into reality through their creations and specific actions.

She called on young people and youth union organisations to make practical contributions to the society and the country, roll out good models on a larger scale and improve the efficiency of their campaigns.

Activities to be carried out in the month will focus on youths’ vocations, green environment, social welfare and the founding anniversary of the HCMCYU.

At the ceremony, the Secretariat of the HCMCYU Central Committee presented gifts and scholarships to social welfare beneficiaries and disadvantaged students.

On this occasion, 1,000 youths donated their blood and 500 others cycled to raise public awareness of traffic safety. Young doctors provided free health check-ups and medicines for workers at industrial parks based in the locality.

Held annually, the Month of Youth aims to educate young people on the position and role the Youth Union plays in socio-economic development, nation building and defence.-VNA
