Autism growing in Vietnam There are about 200,000 documented cases of children with autism in Viet Nam and the number is growing, according to the Asia-Pacific Development Centre on Disability (APCD). The news was voiced with concern at a workshop co-organised by the APCD and the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA). Autism is a neuro-developmental disorder characterised by impaired social interaction and communication, said Dr. Vu Song Ha, vice director of the Centre for Creative Initiatives in Health and Development.

UNESCO has given feedback about Vietnam’s ca tru file. Director of the Music Institute, Le Toan, talked about the compilation of the ca tru file and how to restore this art. We had to stop compiling the ca tru file for a long time in 2006 because UNESCO changed the form of recognition of intangible hertigages. Did we have to amend the file much to fit new criteria?

There is a controversy about the birth of ca tru. Some say that it appeared in the 11th century and others say in the 15th century. What is the Music Institute’s opinion about it? Historical documents dating back to the 11th century have some words about ca tru but they are unclear. It was not until the 15th century when ca tru flourished to become a type of art. The most important part of the file is the action plan of … [Read more...] about How to restore ca tru?
Vittana enables the average person to help low-income learners in places such as Nicaragua and Vietnam. There's a 97% return rate, on average. Vittana CEO Kushal Chakrabarti is grateful that people at Cerritos High and UC Berkeley were “willing to take a risk on me,” he says. “A lot of these students are asking for the same thing.” (Robert Durell, For The Times / March 4, 2010) As she stood onstage at her graduation ceremony in Managua, Nicaragua, Luceymi Maria Lopez Lopez described how the diploma felt in her hand. "Grandioso," she said. "Superbien." "I never thought I would be able to finish," Lopez said. Two years ago, she might have been right. Until 2009, the loans that financed her college education didn't exist. But these days, thanks to the efforts of 27-year-old Southern California native Kushal Chakrabarti, a nonprofit is tapping the microcredit market to fund loans for low-income college students in developing nations — a need that has … [Read more...] about Turning your $25 into loans for students in developing nations
