(HBO) – By implementing the model of "village of culture, defence and security”, the military and residents in Can hamlet of Doc Lap commune, Ky Son district (Hoa Binh province) have gradually eliminated poverty, improved intellectual standards, ensured defence and promoted the local well-being.

The military and residents in Can hamlet of Doc Lap commune (Ky Son district) share experience in building the "village of culture, defence and security” model.

Deriving from the "village of culture” model in 2005, although the building of "village of culture, defence and security” is now just in the initial stage, it has always received support from local people. Over the past years, the military and residents have jointly constructed and repaired roads and civil facilities, while many disadvantaged families have been assisted in house building and crop and livestock farming.

Instead of self-supply production like in the past, agricultural activities have been expanded, becoming a considerable source of income for many families. Almost all areas of low-value plants and uncultivated land have been replaced with gardens of cardiopteris quinqueloba, green bean, wax gourd and bitter melon trees, among others, which have generated high profits.

Can hamlet is now home to 3ha of wax gourd and 0.5ha of bitter melon, along with one chicken farming cooperative group with more than 10 member families.

The roads to this hamlet used to turn muddy and slippery when the rain fell but thanks to efforts of local administration, the military and people, the three roads with total length of over 2km have been paved. Fifty-seven households in the hamlet donated more than 6,930 square metres of land to expand roads and build infrastructure, a cultural centre and irrigation facilities. Monthly clean-up activities are also carried out to protect the environment.

In 2017, residents in Can hamlet and the military actively took part in building new-style rural areas. They cleaned up roads through villages, dredged canals, reinforced eroded roads with rocks, and repaired houses for flood victims./.
