Provide a training allowance for one woman.
Sharmin was born in the Tangail brothel where her grandmother was a landlady. In Bangladesh, this stigma alone is difficult to overcome. Sharmin married but her husband abused her, so she now lives with her mother and her disabled brother. She has done a bit of tailoring and is interested in learning more sewing and improving her life.
Our training programme provides counselling, support, and the skills a woman needs to rebuild her life. She receives an allowance so she can focus on her training and find stable housing if she doesn't have a safe place to live. Women in our program receive the level of training needed; learning to write her name, basic literacy, or computer classes. She will learn to make Basha products and always has the option of Basha employment. She is prepared and supported to step into new opportunities for herself and for her family.
By donating to Friends of Basha, you can help us provide essential programmes that help women and children escape exploitation. Together we can help women and children find freedom and dignity.
Thank you so much for joining our cause.
