This is 1 between 2 first main units (ward 11 of district 5 and Tan Thong Hoi commune of Cu Chi district) that builds on the pilot model of “Women Participating in Environmental Activities” club, a new, diversified model facilitating women’s work, exchanging experiences in environmental preservation and proposed solutions to difficulties related to environmental activities. This model also acts as a key unit for disseminating and holding environmental preservation programs as well as finding urgent environmental issues to discuss, mobilizing the community to solve or make suggestions to appropriate authorities. In the ceremony, delegates elected 5 members of Executive Committee. Ms. Huynh Ngoc Tran, and the leader of the Chinese women work group was elected as Chairwoman of the Committee.
