Challenge

Many young adults in Bangladesh are the primary breadwinners in their families. They support multi-generational households but struggle in jobs that offer no upward mobility.

Solution

There is immense potential in information technology (IT) sector in Bangladesh. Career experts urge potential job-seekers to build their career in IT as presently, the IT sector has a shortage of trained manpower. To fill the existing gap in the field of graphic design, The Family aims to launch a pilot program to help 10 deserving candidates to develop skills and gain employment in commercial graphic design.

Long-Term Impact

This project will help to achieve and fulfill the basic need of 10 families by providing technical training and employment opportunities in graphic design to the primary earner in the family. Expected outcomes include supporting 10 families of up to 5 members each (total of 50 people) with the financial ability to pay for food, clothing, shelter, education and medication. Gradually this project will help to establish a financially strong society in Bangladesh.
