The Prime Minister called on all levels of Party committees, administrations, organisations, families, schools, and society at large to commit to this essential work. He affirmed that the Party and State have consistently prioritized child care and protection, ensuring the best conditions for children to develop comprehensively in a safe and healthy environment. They have also respected and responded to children’s wishes and opinions, striving to guarantee children’s interests in relevant decisions.

PM Chính urged for stronger determination, greater efforts, practical actions, and more resources to be allocated for child care, education, and protection. He emphasized the need for effective implementation of mechanisms and policies on child care, protection, and education. Additionally, he called for enhanced public-private partnerships to attract more social resources for upgrading education infrastructure for disabled students and fully implementing student policies.

Expressing his appreciation for the dedication of teachers at the centre and similar institutions, PM Chính encouraged them to continue overcoming challenges and supporting their students, helping them become valuable and contributing members of society.

The Prime Minister also encouraged the children to persevere, remain determined, and nurture their dreams and aspirations, overcoming challenges to acquire knowledge and skills. He emphasized the importance of inspiring their peers and contributing positively to society.
