Guangxi Women's Federation will work with Guangxi Leading Group Office of Poverty Alleviation and Development to help local underprivileged women find employment or start up their own businesses in a campaign for the 13th Five-Year Plan (2016-2020), according to a paper recently released by the government.

The campaign is aimed at furthering women's engagement in economic and social affairs, supporting business start-ups, and helping them find work  and take care of family members in their hometowns.

Beneficiaries are expected to receive various means of assistance ranging from help with agricultural plantation, livestock breeding, handmade weaving training, housekeeping service training and more.

Women's federation in Heng County organized local women to demonstrate their talents in the production of traditional local foods in a contest on March 28. The event was designed to help them hone their relevant skills and deepen friendship amongst them.
