The same day,  the Dak Lak provincial Women’s Union launched a program called “Love Connection and Sharing” for local disadvantaged women. 

As many as 80 gift sets were presented to single, disabled women as well as those with Agent Orange/Dioxin. On the occasion, they were also provided with free medical check-ups and medicines.

Earlier on March 6, the Women’s Union of the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho launched the Women Startup Day on March 6 to mark the event and encourage the women to start businesses.

The Women Startup Day will hold a series of programs to support the women’s startups between 2018 and 2025 as they are encountering a number of barriers in skills, resources and ability to use cutting-edge technology.
