HA NOI — Senior lieutenant Tran Binh Phuc from the southern province of Ca Mau balances his work as a border guard with another task: teaching the local children.

He is one of the people honoured at the exhibition Modest and Noble Examples that opened yesterday in Ha Noi. Featuring 300 photos and objects, it celebrates organisations and individuals who are “learning and following Ho Chi Minh’s thought, morality and lifestyle”.

Phuc is working at the border post of Hon Chuoi Island in Ca Mau Province. He is also a teacher of a special class gathering students aged 5-14 who are living on the island. Their parents can’t afford to send them to study in the mainland, so Phuc volunteered to teach them.

The exhibition is the result of a mobilization effort launched in the past six years to learn and follow President Ho Chi Minh’s morality, according to Vu Manh Ha, director of the Ho Chi Minh Museum.

“The exhibition introduces and honours prime exemplars who are doing good things nationwide,” he said.

Phuc is one of 128 examples selected from many candidates nominated by the provincial departments of propaganda and training and departments of culture.

“The exhibition comprises moving and humane stories of simple people who overcome troubles in their lives, devote themselves to the community and join hands to build up and protect the nation,” said Ha.

“We expect that the exhibition will promote examples of ‘good person, good work’ all over the country and mobilise people to follow President Ho’s example.”

Among the highlighted stories is Ho Van Vai from the central province of Quang Tri, who donated a part of his land to build a kindergarten for local children. Ta Dinh Huy from Ha Noi is also recognised for creating many inventions in agricultural production.

The exhibition will run until the end of September at the Ho Chi Minh Museum, 19 Ngoc Ha Street, Ha Noi. — VNS
