The Embassy of New Zealand in Vietnam is to offer NZD50,000, equivalent to roughly US$35,600, to the project, which has been designed with the goal of reaching more than 350 women workers over the next three months. The female workers targeted as part of the scheme will typically be in informal employment, such as street vendors, junk collectors, or house keepers. "This is a practical initiative to help ease the economic impacts of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and to strengthen the resilience of more than 350 women workers and their families, in Da Nang and Hue's informal sectors." "I believe that supporting women workers in sectors that are hardest hit by the pandemic is a vital component of robust, inclusive, and equitable recovery," he said. The project will feature training on household economic literacy and management, women's rights, and child nutrition. As part of the scheme, financial support can be used to purchase food, living essentials, or small livelihood options. "We desire to contribute to the commitments of Vietnam and New Zealand, of leaving no one behind in the COVID-19 fight," he added.
