Meeting with the Japanese Professor at Le Quy Don High School for the Gifted, Da Nang
On 5th October 2017, thanks to the collaboration between the Viet Nam Assistance for the Handicapped (VNAH), the Da Nang Department of Foreign Affairs and the Da Nang Department of Education and Training, nearly 600 students of Le Quy Don High School for the Gifted had an opportunity to attend the talk on the Japanese country, culture and people by Professor Sensuke Shishido, Chairman of CSR2, a Japanese non-governmental organization in the field of education and advanced support for students and teachers in Asian countries.
As a witness of the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear power leak that occurred in Fukushima Prefecture in 2011, Professor Sensuke Shishido talked about how students and people there could deal with disasters and overcome difficulties in order to demonstrate the resilience of the Japanese people in facing catastrophes, that, in turn, inspire students to be international volunteers.
With the touching story about the friendship between Phan Boi Chau - a Vietnamese patriot and Asaba Sakitaro - a Japanese doctor, the students had a better view on the Dong Du Vietnamese Political Movement as well as the lesson about patriotism, independence and peace, as well as the relationship between Viet Nam and Japan.
With the passion of a person who has been working in the field of education aid for ethnic minority students in remote Asian countries, used to be a teacher, and loves Viet Nam, Mr. Shishido Sensuke promised to keep supporting the cultural exchange activities and opening more opportunities for schools to cooperate between the two countries. He hoped that there would be more good study and cultural exchange programs for both Japanese and Vietnamese students.
