Hanoi – A programme aiming to offer devices to foster disadvantaged students’ online learning has been launched by youth organisations in Vietnam.
Addressing the launch ceremony held on September 12, President of the Vietnam Youth Federation Central Committee Nguyen Ngoc Luong said that complex developments of the COVID-19 pandemic have forced students in various localities to study online. However, many of them do not have devices or skills to attend virtual courses.
He called on organisations and businesses to engage in the programme so as to enable students to learn without being disrupted by the ongoing pandemic.

The programme will work to present technological and telecommunication equipment and applications, Luong said.
It will be rolled out in three phases, with the first one running until the end of this year and aiming to present 50,000 learning devices.
The second phase is to offer at least 100,000 devices and be carried out from next January until the pandemic is brought under control. Meanwhile, the final one aims to support students in mountainous and remote areas, as well as the country’s border regions and islands.
At the launch ceremony, the organising board raised more than 78 billion VND (3.42 million USD).
As many as 220 devices for online learning; 9,000 accounts in courses for learning foreign languages, information technology, and soft skills; along with 9,000 4G SIM cards, were given to students in Ho Chi Minh City, Binh Duong, Dong Nai, and Long An provinces and Hanoi capital.
