The girls wrote a book!

BRAC is proud to share with you a wonderful new children’s book that features the creativity of 20 girls from one of our clubs in Dhamrai, Bangladesh. 

Shuba and the Cyclone is an adventurous tale of a Ganges River dolphin who must find her way home after a cyclone. Published byDot-to-Dot Children’s Books, the book is based on stories written by participants in BRAC’s SoFEA program in Dhamrai, Bangladesh. Click here to read about the writing workshop the girls participated in last year.

Dot-to-Dot’s creative writing team selected favorite elements written during the workshop and combined them into a single story, making Shuba and the Cyclone an expression of the collective creativity of the young women who helped write it.

However, Shuba is not the only hero whose story is told through this book. The girls who helped author the book are prominently featured in the book as role models for generations of youth around the world.

Meet these amazing girls and pre-order a copy of the book now by clicking here! Books will ship by November 1st - just in time for the holidays! Enter the code BRAC at checkout and BRAC will get 40% of the proceeds.
