QUANG BINH (VNS) — The Quang Binh Women's Association has built a total of 344 houses for poor single women in the province since 2008.
This was declared today at a meeting of the association, held to mark the Vietnamese Women's Day, which will fall on next Tuesday.
The association also set up nearly 1,200 models of manufacturing and trading outlets as examples for local women to study.
By June this year, nearly 86 per cent of local women had joined the association's activities.
At the meeting, standing deputy secretary of the provincial Party Committee Hoang Dang Quang asked the association to improve the training it provides to its workers, especially in poor and remote areas.
The association should also diversify its activities to attract more women to join it, he said. — VNS
