VietNamNet Bridge – As part of a programme to teach people more about Vietnam’s history, HCM City’s Department of Culture and Information has decided to hang banners on Vietnamese female heroes on streets.


Findings of a survey done a little earlier in Ho Chi Minh City reveal that Vietnamese people there know very little about the country’s history. This has prompted the department of the city to launch a pilot project themed “Our people know our history”.


The project has been done under cooperation between the department, Focus Media Company and Saigon Postal Service Joint-stock Company.


At the first stage of implementation 611 banners have been hung to provide knowledge on who-is-who to tell people about Vietnamese female heroes in the past whose names have been used for streets in the city. The activity is also to celebrate Vietnam Women’s Day (October 20).


As reported, the project will be continued with hanging banners on important events such as February 3 (Foundation of Vietnam’s Communist Party, February 27 (Death anniversary of Hung Vuong, the first King of Vietnam). Biographic information of numerous Vietnamese heroes will be introduced to people aiming to provide more knowledge on the country’s history.
