Qingdao Women's Federation in east China's Shandong Province has taken full advantage of the internet and digital technology after issuing volunteers with electronic ID cards and extending many of their services online.
The move has enabled the federation to boost the number of women who have agreed to help to 400,000, which indicates that one out of every ten in Qingdao is a volunteer, according to an official.
Residents who wish to volunteer can now complete the process online at the website women.qingdao.gov.cn. They can later begin to work with their e-card via the so-called "Cloud Service". In turn, citizens who are in need of help are able to access many kinds of services online.
Further initiatives that volunteers can benefit from include the official WeChat account Family Growth, which focuses on family education and children's development. The account features content provided by local educational experts and members from role-model families in the region.
Meanwhile, the official website has specially established an online center to safeguard the legal rights and interests of women and children, stated the official. Residents can browse over 60 typical cases and get timely legal assistance from professional advisers.
In addition, the federation has promoted the planting of trees and green spaces among rural households, and assisted them with projects involving modern agricultural technology.
So far, around 10,000 villagers have benefited from such online schemes, which are led by multiple teams comprised of over 8,000 female officials and students.
