Over the last five years, in the spirit of "Solidarity, creativity, proactive integration, helping to develop Yen Bai province”, local women have upheld traditions, tapped into their potential and creativity, and enthusiastically taken part in patriotic emulation movements and campaigns, thereby helping to improve the awareness of 154,000 members at 1,394 women’s unions at the grassroots level.
Across Yen Bai, there are 195 exemplary collectives and individuals in studying and following late President Ho Chi Minh’s ideology, morality, and lifestyle. Many creative models have been applied during the implementation of the "Building families of five nos, three cleans” campaign, the national target programme on building new-style rural areas, and the "All people stay united to build new-style countryside, civilised cities” campaign.

Nearly 5,400 more households have met all the eight criteria, raising the province’s total number to over 108,500 - equivalent to 78 percent of the membership.
