Besides acting as refuges at times of family dispute and mediation and as sites for women's education and skills training, the Women's Homes also organize cultural and sports activities and evaluation campaigns, such as the Civilized Family and the Model Daughter-in-law elections, to enrich residents' life and promote community stability.

"We are striving to upgrade the number of Women's Homes and make full use of its roles in providing a skills-training platform and rights protection for local Tibetan woman," Dawa Norbu, president of Lhasa Women's Federation, said at the inauguration ceremony.
