Looking good, Vietnam!

Vietnam has made impressive gender equality achievements, giving its women a chance to improve their livelihood and status. ASSIST’s own Beauty for a Better Life, in partnership L’Oréal Vietnam is just one of the projects that uplift the lives of less privileged Vietnamese women by training them in beauty services and entrepreneurship. 

Last November, 3 batches of beneficiaries were awarded. In Ha Giang, the first batch consisting of 13 beneficiaries received their certificates on November 7, and in Dien Bien, 25 beneficiaries received theirs on November 13. In the same month, the second batch in Muong Te, Lai Chau, consisting of 22 beneficiaries, was also certified. 

With the certification of the first few batches, subsequent batches are well on their way to completion. In Dien Bien, training for the second batch was opened in late October 2020, garnering 28 attendees. In Thanh Hoa Province, training is ongoing for their 2nd batch and will conclude by the end of January this year. In Muong Te, Lai Chau, the third batch of beneficiaries has been transported to Sin Ho, a separate village within the province, ready to undergo training.
