With the support from the project, clubs will organize monthly meetings to communicate laws and policies relating to women and children such as: the Law o­n Gender Equality, the Law o­n Domestic Violence Prevention and Control, the Law o­n Children Protection, Care and Education. These activities will be implemented in integrating with Women’s Union activities at the local level.
