The women’s union of Tan An commune presents gifts to poor students.

“Since 2017, the women’s union of the village has mobilized the members to classify waste at home to raise fund for the poor members and children. All of the members join hands for a green and clean environment”, said Nhai.

To that end, the women’s union called the members’ families to use hand basket instead of plastic bags to go shopping or use farming byproducts such as straw, strings from banana tree, bamboo strings to tie vegetable.

The women’s union of Nguyen village is among 8 others implementing the model “Economical group of women” following President Ho Chi Minh’s morality. This activity was most properly implemented in 2018 by the women in the commune.

As a result, nearly 40 million VND (1,700 USD) was gained from selling plastic garbage to help more than 20 needy women and children to build houses and have fund for production.

Tran Thi Thuong (born in 1984) in Nguyen village is one of many other members benefiting the “Accompanying poor women” Fund. Her husband Chu Van Huy (born in 1982) is weak and unable to do hard work due to an industrial accident.

Thus, the women’s unions of Nguyen village and Tan An commune decided to use 6 million VND (259 USD) from the “Accompanying poor women” Fund to help her family buy a cow and give gifts to her children to encourage them to school.
