Congratulations Nari Jibon.
It's good to learn a bit about all of you.

David Sasaki said...

Sujon, these stories are very inspiration and clearly show that Nari Jibon is a model that should be replicated all over the world. In fact, just imagine how much better the world would be if there was a Nari Jibon center in every village in every country.

Not only Narijibon is giving a second chance and a wide very wide field of studies to all the housewives and girls who were considered to only manage the household. But they are starting to change the face of their community in a very revolutionary way, women taking parts in the household financially, young girls with very entrepreunarial spirit, we know about the difficulties to manage the program but without people like you : there won't be progress!...You are the spring of Rising Voices!

Dear All,
Thank you very much for your nice comments. Actually we have some more stories as students don't keep connection with us after taking skill from Nari Jibon. Some students also change thier addresses with their parents/husbands.
Special thanks to Dear David Sasaki as his donation helps increasing students' knowledge and communication with Nari Jibon. Thanks again to David Sasaki as many people/students already are expecting some branches of Nari Jibon.
Thanks everyone and pray for Nari Jibon
