Community engagement

Youth Foundation of Bangladesh already have a pilot project of capacity building in this area and recently we have done a survey to identify the problems and beneficiaries of this project and concluded on priority for the beneficiaries. As we found school dropout children, early marriage of the girl keeps then unskilled for good job market and thus transmitting the poverty through the generation. Our conclusion is to break the transmission of poverty by making youth into skilled human capital.

Approach to engage the community:  We have already engaged with this community through our recent survey. We have talked with slum owners or slum leaders about this project. In later stage, before starting this project we will inaugurate a briefing session or seminar with
local community and authorities to discuss about the significance of this project.

Following steps will follow before launching

As part of community engagement, we may engage local ward commissioner as an active advisor and opening the class/project through him. With his support, we shall also apprise city mayor for seeking their support for this. We shall also inform local administration about the project and request them for their support as & when necessary. We shall engage ourselves for proactive stakeholder’s management, meet them on routine basis and make them understand the value of the project outcome. Hope they would also own the project and extend their necessary help.

Expected Government support

Direct and indirect collaboration with local authority to strengthen the project activities Take administrative support to get free from future risk and hassles Since we are going to establish training center for building capability of slum inhabitants, we will introduce, Youth Group, Local Community and Institutes.
