Ms. Wu Qing of Rural Women invited VPP Co-founder and Director Marieke Reichwein to speak
at the Practical Skills Training Center for Rural Women. Along with Matthew Li, Marieke gave
a class on the social enterprise concept of the Malidoulaixi Bathhouse Project. The students were
two groups of 50 women from Jiangxi, Inner-Mongolia and Guangxi who were taking a course
on entrepreneurship especially customized for women from rural areas.
VPP is currently discussing the possibility of a joint effort with Rural Women for training women entrepreneurs from the areas where VPP is building bathhouses.
