The seminar was part of the “We are ABLE” project that aims to strengthen the empowerment and improve the livelihood and income for women from ethnic minority groups. The project, funded by CJ Group of the Republic of Korea, was launched in 2019 and covers Ha Giang province in the north, Ninh Thuan in the south central region, and Soc Trang in the south.
VNA quoted the sayings of UNESCO representative in Vietnam Christian Manhart that COVID-19 has forced many schools to shut down, causing the largest learning disruption in human history. In Vietnam, 21 million students have been affected, including girls.
At the seminar, speakers shared their findings in education for girls from ethnic minority groups through their 99-day journey across Vietnam, as well as their views on the role of the press in the education of girls from ethnic minority groups.
Participants discussed a number of issues, including images of girls and women in the media, and gave solutions to exploit sustainable approaches to promote the internal strengths of girls from ethnic minority groups./.
