Hang Thi Cha, a seventh-grader from the De Xu Phinh elementary and secondary semi-boarding school for ethnic minorities, said a communications event under the project helps her understand more about normal physical changes in puberty and ways to prevent sexual harassment.

Also under the project, the Nam Khat secondary semi-boarding school for ethnic minorities ran an educational game that attracted more than 400 students.

These activities were among the many organised in 2021 by the provincial centre for sci-tech development and community health care, which implements the project.

They targeted children, their parents or caregivers, and local authorities. Included were training courses for 100 children in Mu Cang Chai and 51 parents as well as commune-level child forums and open discussions that drew the attention of the community, social organisations, and authorities toward child protection works.

The centre also aided the Bao Ai health station and the Cam An general clinic with communications equipment, while running health consultations for children.
