Skills Development

UNLOCKING THE POTENTIAL OF FUTURE GENERATIONS

 

"Skills development is an urgent need in Bangladesh, because of the high number of underemployed young people and our increasing dependence on skilled manpower from neighbouring countries."

-Sir Fazle Hasan Abed

 

 

A third of Bangladesh’s population is 10-24 years old and two million young people enter the labour market every year, but half of the population are illiterate or semi literate. In 2013, 41% of young people were not in employment, education or training.
