Majibacoa, Las Tunas.- Consolidating the functioning at the grassroots level was an idea reiterated in the great meeting, where the main interventions also revolved around women's empowerment, the work of the House of Orientation for Women and the Family, as well as achieving greater linkage of federates with agricultural work to support food production.

The delegates also referred to the political-ideological work with the youth and the efficient use of social networks, "contents of collective interest are no longer published", they warned, at the same time they made a call not to be light in the selection of contents.

They highlighted the work of the house workshop of the municipality, where they work with the girls on issues related to the history of the Federation and Cuba in general.
