 Phase two of the iNhandao digital platform was officially launched at a ceremony held by the Ministry of Science and Technology in Hanoi, earlier this week.

The platform aims to facilitate humanitarian activities in the country. It is part of the Connecting Millions of Hearts program, launched at the event. It is also under the framework of the government’s project to develop the digital Vietnamese knowledge system.

According to a news report, speaking at the event, the Deputy Prime Minister, Vu Duc Dam, said that the digital system will share knowledge, promote creativity, and connect the community for a better future. He expressed his hope that the entire community would participate in the project with their “wholehearted efforts”.

Launched in 2018, the project intends to share data and disseminate knowledge in the fields of socio-economic development, science, and technology. Simultaneously, it will create favourable conditions for communities to participate in contributing, sharing, exploiting, and creating digital applications for production, businesses, and daily activities.

So far, the project has built a digital foundation in the fields of humanitarianism, education, healthcare, culture, and tourism, allowing the community to connect, share data, and work together to implement activities. This contributes to accelerating digital transformation.

In 2019, the first two digital platforms, the Digital Humanitarian Platform (iNhandao) and the Vmap Digital Ma were welcomed by the community and gradually became applied in practice, the report stated.

Following the first phase of the iNhandao project, Phase 2 is the result of the cooperation between the Vietnam Red Cross Society, Military Commercial Joint Stock Bank (MB), and Vietnam Post Corporation (VNPost). The collaboration aims to build a social network model and encouraging users to share and update humane and humanitarian campaigns.

The system collects humanitarian data to provide organisations, individuals, and businesses with complete and accurate information about those who need support. It will ensure support comes to the right people conveniently and transparently. It also promotes application development for connecting and coordinating humanitarian work on both web and mobile platforms. Donors can track their sponsorship activities and results on the system easily and in detail.

At the launch, delegates were directly connected with representatives of Red Cross Society chapters in Yen Bai and Phu Tho provinces, as well as meeting people in difficult circumstances who need the support of the community.

Through the digital humanitarian platform, the Vietnam Red Cross Society has cooperated with the MB, the VNPost, and the Ministry of Education and Training to launch the campaign Connecting the Future, hoping to donate used tablets and smartphones to help students in mountainous areas of Phu Tho and Yen Bai provinces. The campaign will last for three months, from 1 October to 31 December.

People can donate their used smartphones and tablets manufactured from 2017 until now and are still in good use to the nearest post offices of VNPost. The equipment will be technically checked, cleaned, and handed over to teachers and students in need. In response to the campaign, the MB awarded 50 tablets and phones to disadvantaged students in Phu Tho and Yen Bai.

At the event, three new platforms were launched, including a COVID-19 Safe Living Map, a digital education platform, and a compilation project for the Vietnamese Encyclopedia.
