Aiming to be a comprehensive service organization in accordance with ethnical groups’ needs, the center will, in addition, carry out hot research issues for women and children and public welfare promotion.

Bao Xiaochun, vice-chairman of the Inner Mongolian Women’s Federation explained that the region will focus on the construction of online service platforms for women and children, based on “hotline 12338”, a service hotline set up by the All-China Women’s Federation to protect women’s legal rights. The volunteers can therefore provide online services for women and children, Bao said, in a more efficient and convenient way.
