Healthcare for Women and Children
22 million Bangladeshi live under the poverty line. Especially in the rural areas, access to healthcare is a huge challenge. Women face barriers such as location, financial burdens, bureaucracy, and access to transportation resulting in lengthy commutes and wait times. Additionally, women don't always have access to female providers which they prefer over male providers.View our response
Empowerment of Women
Bangladesh has made remarkable improvements in the past few decades regarding women's empowerment.
However, there are still several challenges that remain. Some of these include childbirth mortality rates, fertility issues, disparity in female education and literacy rates, and gender based discrimination and violence. Consequently, these issues prohibit women from achieving their full potential.View our response
Nursing School and Scholarship
There is a significant shortage of qualified nurses in Bangladesh. Many young women wishing to enter the field have limited opportunities due to issues like lack of funds, cultural barriers, and familial obligations. Due to this, women have few education and career options in the rural areas of Bangladesh. As a result, more often than not, they are married off by their families. This is the scenario especially in villages like Chondipur.View our response
