Through school support, life skills training, and community engagement, Duaripara Family Project is working to empower young women and guide them to a better future.
After-school programs and catch-up programs help ensure a bright future for over 120 girls.
Life Skills Training
Oasis Bangladesh provides training in hygiene, nutrition, and HIV/AIDS prevention as well as economic and financial planning skills. Increasing awareness of issues surrounding early marriage and human rights helps protect girls and families.
The Duaripara Family Project works directly with parents and community members to help alleviate family conflict, violence, drugs, and early marriage. They also connect parents to economic resources, and counsel them on the value of keeping their girls in school.
