January 15, a launching event, introducing the 'Safe journey' mobbile app that connects female migrants to housing, job and other useful information, was held in Hanoi.

With the population of 90 million and accelerating pace of socio-economic development in Vietnam, the demand for job of women, especially female migrants from 18 to 30 is getting more difficult. Young and passionate, but they are lack of information, skills and experiences living and working in a bustling city like Hanoi.

Plan International Vietnam, along with LIGHT Vietnam, Dong Anh District Women’s Union and School of Economics and Engineering Bac Thang Long has developed a mobile application called ‘Hanh trinh an toan’ (Safe journey), which belongs to the project 'Empowering Female Migrant Youth to Succeed in the City and Workplace' (SAFE).

The application connects housing, job opportunities and other helpful information about life in the city for people working away from home, especially female migrants.

Over 20,000 female migrants in Dong Anh district, Hanoi will lose their jobs at the Industrial Zone once they turn 30, without stability or security in their future. Empowering female migrant youth to succeed in the city and workplace (SAFE) project by Plan International Vietnam and local partners will help resolve this, by providing female migrants (age 18-30) with opportunities in vocational and life skill training, access to health care services, safety housing, decent work and entrepreneurship, in order to acquire a more secured life with stable jobs./.

"... 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)
