Milk of kind­ness for poor fam­i­lies

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - BUSINESS -

Women from poor ar­eas in China will be of­fered free train­ing cour­ses on house­keep­ing and babysit­ting, so they can be pro­fes­sional nan­nies in the fu­ture. The or­ga­nizer, Nether­lands-based milk pow­der pro­ducer Royal Fries­land Camp­ina NV, do­nated 1.2 mil­lion yuan ($177,000) in July to help 200 ru­ral women who lacked the ed­u­ca­tion or work­ing skills to im­prove their lives. The first phase of the project was con­ducted last year, tar­get­ing 140 women from poor coun­ties in five prov­inces. Af­ter the onemonth train­ing, the monthly salary of those who worked in Bei­jing reached a max­i­mum 7,000 yuan, ac­cord­ing to the com­pany.
