3,000 affection houses for poor women – a special emulation program to celebrate the 11th Vietnam National Women’s Congress
Posted: Mar 06,2012

On 6th January 2012, in the 10th Conference of National Executive Committee of the Vietnam Women’s Union (VWU), 10th tenure, it was decided to launch a special emulation program dedicated to poor women and children in 2012.

This is a practical program to celebrate the 11th Vietnam National Women’s Congress, calling to support the building of affection houses for poor women and scholarships for poor students with very good performance. The program, which is to be implemented nationwide from 1st January to 30th June 2012, is aimed at building 3,000 affection houses for the women who are poor, single, disabled and facing special difficulties; and granting 1,000 scholarships for poor students with good performance throughout the country.

In response to this program, on 18th January the Central VWU called for its staff’s contribution to the program. Right after the call, the entire staff of VWU had donated each from 1-day wage to 1-month salary. The total donation reached over 900 million VND.

The special emulation program to celebrate the 11th Vietnam National Women’s Congress is the follow-up activity of the VWU’s Affection House Mobilization Campaign launched in 2008. This campaign has won active response and valuable support from women nationwide, corporate sector, agencies and organizations in the country and abroad. After nearly 4 years, WUs of central and provincial levels have mobilized nearly 186,000 billion VND to build about 12,000 affection houses (15 – 20 million VND/house) and repair 3,000 houses for poor, single, disabled women and women in special difficulties, helping them to improve the living conditions and better integrate with the community.

"... From the beginning of the first century A.D., when the two Trung Sisters rose up to fight the enemy and save the nation, until now, whenever our country has faced danger, our women have contributed whatever they could toward the cause of national liberation.

Our people are grateful that our mothers from South and North alike have borne and raised our nation's generation of heroes....

Under the Socialist system, tens of thousands of women have become specialists in different fields and, as cadre, serve as directors and vice-directors of factories, leaders of farming cooperatives, presidents of People’s Committees, and general secretaries of Party Cells....

And so, the women of Vietnam from ancient times until now, from South to North, from young to old, are truly heroes ..."

(Excerpted from President Ho Chi Minh's speech on the 36th Anniversary of Vietnam Women's Union 20 October 1966)
