Hello! I am from Bangladesh

Jasim Uddin 

Hello! I am Jasim Uddin. My village is Kathalia , which is located to the East side of Moricha Bazar in Ukhia Thana in Cox’s Bazar district.

We are Bangladeshi. Around half of the population of our country is young. As Bangladesh is a developing country, we are facing various limitations. That’s why many people of our country do not want to involve themselves with self-employment. But from the beginning of my student’s life, I had a dream to establish an organization with young people, which will contribute for creating self employment.

At first I initiated and started to organize youth from my own community from the year 2014. Onwards two of my friends extended their hands to me. We named the organization JSR (Justice Solidarity Reunity) -student group. After a while we realized that for strengthening our initiatives we needed some capacity.

Our commitment to build a Tobacco free Cox’s Bazar

Blogger Sumi Akhter
Sumi Akhter: We all know that tobacco is the single largest preventable cause of death and it is the only legally available consumer product, that kills people. Tobacco causes cancers of the lung, larynx, kidney, bladder, stomach, colon, oral cavity and esophagus as well as leukemia, chronic bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, ischemic heart disease, stroke, miscarriage and premature birth, birth defects and infertility, since tobacco contains 7000 chemicals, which are very harmful for health. Bangladesh is one of the countries, where both production and consumption of tobacco use is high. A study of WHO shows that 100,000 people die yearly and 382,000 people become disabled due to illness caused by tobacco related diseases in Bangladesh. Tobacco is not only harmful to health, but also to the economy, the environment, nutrition, poverty, women, children, adolescents and overall human rights.

Our Duties towards Young Women Development

Shahin Aktar
Shahin Aktar: Wealth is created, where it rains. Rain is sign of love and affection. The same feeling belongs to a woman. They are the soul and strength of a country.

Bangladesh is a middle-income country. One half of the population of Bangladesh are women. Hoever, most of the women are not empowered. The main causes behind it, is that women are facing lots of obstruction from their family and society and they also don’t get enough opportunities to be empowered. However, it is possible to strengthen the situation of women through resolving all obstacles and problems in their way… like Begum Rokeya Sakhawat did.

Begum Rokeya Sakhawat Hossain (1880-1932) is widely acknowledged and accepted as a female iconic figure in Bangladesh, who undertook serious efforts to improve and strengthen the situation of women in society. She understood the causes of the despicable situation of women and “prescribed” women education as a remedy. Rokeya emphasized women education to emancipate them so that they could be free as humans. Rokeya played an important role in spreading women’s education and their empowerment. She tried to rectify unnatural practices of seclusion and men’s negative perception of education for women. Finally, Rokeya urged all women to undertake every effort to move forward and to foster their intellect via education.
