t the end of last month, CARE International in Lao PDR together with government partners and representatives of Village Savings and Loan Associations groups (VSLA) in 3 target villages of the Women Empowerment for Climate Resilience (WECR) Project in Phongsaly Province went on a study tour on the process of making bowls in Nasan Village, Nga District, Oudomxay Province. This is to exchange knowledge and share the lesson learned from the study tour with members of the VSLA group in the village so that they will have additional careers in order to to generate income for their own families.
