More than 3,000 students and young people in Hanoi on May 5 took part in the kick-off ceremony of a voluntary youth summer campaign, which has been held for the 15 th year by the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union of Hanoi.

This year’s campaign is expected to draw the participation of about 50,000 volunteers in a range of activities to promote good urban living style and build new-style rural areas during the period from June to August.

The highlight of the campaign will be the building of roads in two rural districts of Thach That and Thanh Tri.

Young people in Hanoi have donated nearly 1.3 billion VND for Phung Xa commune in Thach That district to build a road running across the commune. Besides, the volunteers will contribute more than 20,000 working days to help local people build a system of roads on rice fields..

In addition, volunteer teams will be set up to assist students from other provinces and cities who come to Hanoi for the university entrance examination in July.

Following the ceremony, the youth and the municipal leaders joined a walk to promote civilised weddings.-VNA
