Development Project

Education and capacity building of women in the fight against malnutrition

 The aim of this project is to reinforce the capacity of four target groups of women in the region of Cascade (provinces Comoe and Leraba) in the rural sector to fight against malnutrition. The four target groups are women of childbearing age, pregnant women, nursing mothers and women with children under five. To reach these target groups, HOPE’87 in financial support from the City of Vienna carried out trainings for women, which have contributed to reduce the level of malnutrition within the population of the target region.

HOPE Technical Training Centre

 The Technical Training Centre, which is situated in Old Dhaka City existing since 2001, is also a youth and learning centre for the local youth. The centre successfully gives local students the opportunity to learn computer literacy, since it was declared as compulsory for all school children by the Government of Bangladesh but cannot be provided by most of the schools. This Training Centre is also affiliated to the Bangladesh Technical Education Board and successful students obtain attendance certificates.
