A vocational training program is giving rural women financial independence and a lot more

A program that trains rural women in beauty care is helping to untie them from domestic chores, to improve their social lives, build their confidence and give them more financial independence.

Five years ago the job options that lay before Liu Yang, then 25, of a small village in Qianxi county, Tangshan city, Hebei, were meager indeed: selling clothes or serving food in a restaurant.

Then, in April 2015, a two-month training project was set up in Qianxi for women with no income so they could learn makeup, skincare and hairstyle design skills. The training was offered free of charge, and organizers were flooded with applications, so they had to whittle down the list to 40, the oldest of whom were 48 years old, Liu says.
