Vietnamese Women Federation in Europe Connects Overseas Vietnamese
|Congress to establish the Vietnamese Women Federation in Europe.|
The establishment of the Vietnamese Women Federation (VWF) in Europe is like a common home where overseas Vietnamese women can meet, and support each other in activities to preserve and promote Vietnamese values, better integrating in host countries and towards the homeland.
Arousing pride of Vietnamese women
Nguyen Viet Trieu, president of the Vietnamese Women Federation in Europe, said that the birth of the federation is the wish of all Vietnamese women living in Europe.
Trieu is happy to always receive the sympathy and support of women in other countries. Despite geographical barriers, federation members overcame difficulties and unanimously agreed to contribute to the success of the first congress.
Along with sketching out the federation's operation directions for the next five years, participants focused on seeking measures to support the formation of organizations for Vietnamese women in countries where such organizations have not been set up and assist member organizations in building their own operational plans.
Vietnamese women in Europe also agreed to promote noble qualities in preserving family happiness, raising children, looking towards their homeland and roots, and preserving national cultural identity.
They supported poor women and orphans in European countries and in Vietnam.
Spirit of the leaders
The success of the Vietnamese women's movement in Europe is due to the great contributions of the leaders - who always demonstrate the spirit of leadership in all activities of the community and the federation.
Typical examples include Phan Bich Thien, president of the Vietnamese Women's Union in Hungary, who launched the initiative and is Head of the Organizing Committee of the Vietnamese Women's Forum in Europe in 2023.
Taking place in the capital Budapest in June, the first forum for overseas Vietnamese women attracted nearly 250 delegates from 21 countries.
At the forum with the theme "Industry 4.0 - Women preserve Vietnamese values and integrate abroad," delegates listened to nearly 20 presentations and speeches.
With the criteria of exchange, connection, and experience sharing, the speeches highlight the role of Vietnamese women in the new era, with a sense of responsibility to the community, preserving and spreading Vietnamese national identity, pioneering spirit in the digital era, and confidence in international integration.
From this forum, the Vietnamese Women's Union in Germany was officially established in early October.
Trinh Thi Mui, president of the Vietnam Women's Union in Germany, said that Germany is large, with 16 states, Vietnamese women live everywhere, in many occupations, in many ages, and with different political opinions.
Mui said that the establishment of the Vietnam Women's Union in Germany affirms that this will be an organization representing the cultural and spiritual values of Vietnamese women, representing knowledge, integration and development.

Nguyen Lan Huong, president of the Vietnamese Women's Union in the Netherlands, affirmed that Vietnamese women living far from their homeland always hope to have the opportunity to contribute to the country
In addition to community activities towards the homeland, and islands, activities honoring national identity are always focused on by women, such as the festival "Shape of Vietnam" held in May, which made a strong impression on the international community and friends.
"Our message when implementing the program is to appreciate the traditions and culture of our S-shaped homeland," said Huong. "Everyone who comes here shares the same message, 'We love Vietnam."
The Vietnamese community, no matter where they are, always helps each other and looks forward to their homeland. Through the difficult times of the pandemic, the spirit of solidarity is even more precious.
With the enthusiasm of Union leaders such as Nguyen Viet Trieu, Phan Bich Thien, Trinh Thi Mui and Nguyen Lan Huong, the Vietnamese women's movement in Europe will continue to grow and prosper in the coming time.
