Thousands of women and girls that we have trained have not only started jobs, do online business but also significantly changed deep rooted social and gender norms in Bangladesh. Combination of IT, financial inclusion, gender and empowerment aspects make us unique as we aspire to see women and girls’ leadership and economic independence in a more sustained way which will have an inter-generational impact. We also express our global solidarity on the same.
