Unemployment is a huge stress on many people living in Bangladesh. 43% of the population lives below the poverty line (they earn less than $1.25 a day).
Unemployment is caused by several factors in this region: over population, lack of opportunity, improper use and training of the labor force, and improper training and education for higher skilled jobs.
Basmah believes in investing in the lives of men and women and helping them receive a proper education. They have established educational programs that help individuals learn computer and typing skills, basic software design, and cell phone repair. Other educational programs are being developed.
The goal of this program is to help individuals learn the skill sets for the jobs available in their areas. Focused vocational training is key for development and job placement.
Donate to Basmah today and help educate an individual. Allow them to succeed in the tough job market they live in and help them provide for their families.
