Project Description: 

The purpose of this project is to empower the youth, especially girls and young women, by strengthening their skills and raising their voices for economic self-reliance, and to take leadership roles in poverty alleviation initiatives in Tangail and Dhaka Districts. By developing skills and providing access to information technology, the youth's productivity will increase in these areas. 

YES Center Tangail's main training venue is the BASA Training & Research Center (BTRC) located in Pekua, Mirzapur Upazila in Tangail District. The Facilities include a dedicated training building equipped with accessories and different brands of machinery made for fashion design block bakik and sewing. The outreach training center is a satellite campus of YES Center Dhaka.

The hope is that the youth's life skills would be enhanced, where 80% are girls and young women. Their economic self-reliance would be improved from gained market training skills. The possibility for the youth to successfully enter into the job market to promote their skills and develop their entrepreneurship would be enhanced. And finally, underprivileged girls and young women will be empowered through their improvement in skills and knowledge, recognizing their qualifications to have access to decent employment and ensuring poverty reduction in their communities.
