AISIMAS Impact Centre Kyoto and NPO Youth International Support Association (YISA) have launched a pilot program in Bangladesh using ILO’s Community-Based Enterprise Development (C-BED) training tools which aid female university students in learning key entrepreneurial skills for successful professional futures.
The first batch of the pilot was successfully completed on Tuesday by five female students who delivered presentations of wonderful business ideas, said a press release issued by C-BED Bangladesh on Wednesday.
The International Labour Organization (ILO) high official team and all members of the C-BED Bangladesh team, students, and Shouly Chann, Cambodian national coordinator for ILO, were present during the business idea presentation, the release added.
The pilot program is funded by the non-profit organization Kazuko Bhuiyan Welfare Trust in association with Intradoc International, an IT enable company from Bangladesh.
C-BED Bangladesh provides 18 class training in total, based on unique peer-learning approaches.
Young female university students from diverse backgrounds have participated in the program and are sharing their business ideas while tackling persistent gender inequalities.
Due to Covid-19 regulations, the program was kicked-off virtually, marking an important direction for delivering business pieces of training during unprecedented times.
C-BED Bangladesh hopes this training inspires future leaders and equips them with tools to succeed in their business endeavors while closing the gender gap and promoting social equality.
C-BED Bangladesh said that it is ready for training the next batches of both female and male students respectively.
