(2016.08.12) WEAVE lauching
Today in Hanoi, Australia’s Ambassador for Women and Girls, Natasha Stott Despoja, launched a new aid project for Vietnam – the Women’s Economic Empowerment through Agriculture Value Chain Enhancement (‘WEAVE’) project.

The Australian Government will provide A$2.5 million for a consortium of three international NGOs –SNV, Oxfam and CARE International – to implement the WEAVE project in Vietnam’s north-western provinces of Lao Cai and Bac Kan. The project is scheduled to run for three years, until 2019.

The WEAVE project will support more than 1,800 women and men in Lao Cai and Bac Kan to improve their livelihoods. It will place particular emphasis on supporting women smallholder farmers and cooperatives to strengthen their skills in marketing, financial literacy, business planning, negotiation, and legal matters.
