The Publicity Department of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF), in partnership with the Open University of China, launched a women's lifelong learning scheme in a ceremony held on September 26 in Beijing.
Song Xiuyan, vice-president and first member of the Secretariat of the ACWF; Jiao Yang, vice-president and member of the Secretariat of the ACWF; and Yang Zhijian, president of the university, attended the event and delivered speeches respectively.
At the ceremony, Song noted that the scheme has fully implemented President Xi's remarks in helping women from different industries across the country realize their "dreams". It would be an important measure for the vast number of females to improve their abilities through learning online, Song added.
Song also expressed her hope that all women can build a life-long learning concept. Meanwhile, she urged women's federations at all levels to provide better services for women's development and called on all sectors of society to create a favorable environment and conditions for them.
During the event, Jiao Yang introduced the scheme and said that it concluded four parts including cultural cultivation, healthy living, marriage and family as well as parent-child education.
Around 80 fine courses and 560 videos have been offered free of charge at present, which have largely combined the modern females' learning characteristics. In addition, Jiao said that more courses would be designed to meet with different women's needs in the future.
Moreover, Yang Zhijian, president of the university, stated that the university would constantly make the most of the teaching platform to provide more premium educational resources for women.
According to organizers, the number of women from seven pilot cities who were introduced to the women's lifelong learning scheme has reached 8,000.
Those in attendance at the ceremony also included Ju Ping, a famous Chinese children's TV host, along with over 200 people from different departments of the ACWF and the university.
