Every weekend or on New Year, Lao students often visit the families of their godmothers. This is an opportunity for them to exchange and learn about the customs, habits and traditional culture of Vietnamese people. In addition, they can also participate in cultural, artistic, sports and culinary activities organized by their families or organized by the Women's Union.

This is not only a friendly, healthy and useful environment, helping them to feel secure when studying away from home, but also a great source of encouragement, especially for them to improve their Vietnamese speaking skills, helping them study better.

On June 28, the Union of Women of Hoa Khanh Nam ward started the second phase of "Second mother" model with the participation of 13 families, supporting 26 Lao students studying at the University of Education - University of Danang.

President of the Lao Women's Union Inlavan Keobounphan said that the “second mother” model is very meaningful when the two countries are celebrating the 60th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations (September 5, 1962 - September 5, 2022) and 45 years of the Treaty of Friendship and Cooperation (July 18, 1977 - July 18, 2022).

“On behalf of the Lao Women's Union, members as well as Lao women across the country, I would like to express the sincere thanks to Vietnamese mothers, the Women's Union of Da Nang city, and the Women's Union of Hoa Khanh Nam ward for conducting this meaningful model and giving Laos students great help. We feel that everywhere, Vietnamese mothers always open their arms to extend their love for Lao students,” said Inlavan Keobounphan.
