Bengali Women Training

Giving dignity to Bengali women through vocational training.

1018_0349

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.

This is how your gifts can help:

  • $72 per non-electric foot-driven sewing machine
  • $167/month for fabric for 30 women to hand embroider
  • $36/month children’s program at the beach
