Bengali Women Training
Giving dignity to Bengali women through vocational training.
In Bangladesh, it is generally unacceptable for women to travel freely or work outside the home.
But Alliance partners in a large city in Bangladesh have created a successful vocational training program for Bengali women who desire to learn a trade and help provide for their families. As many as 30 women participate each semester in a sewing program that enables them to create products to sell in the marketplace. This is a rare opportunity for these women, and it is making a difference in their personal lives.
