QTV - After more than 2 years of implementation, the model of "garbage collection and waste classification" of Uong Bi Women Union has attracted many participants. The  model is not only to propagate and mobilize people to protect the environment and carry out the culture of civilization but also offer finance resources to support poor members.


Once a month, members of Woman Union of Quang Trung ward, Uong Bi town bring sorted garbage to the president’s house for sale to raise fund. Currently, the total income from this model has reached nearly VND 50 million, which is used to help disadvantaged members. Being launched in July of 2015, up to now, the model of "garbage collection and waste classification" has been expanded to 11 branches of Uong Bi Woman Union. All those branches have saved more than 500 million VND from selling scrap. Thanks to this money, over the past two years, hundreds of poor women have been offered loans for economic development; many disadvantaged children have been supported with scholarships, many families under difficult conditions have enjoyed health insurance.
