Last July, representatives from The Hunger Project Bangladesh (THP) joined our Master Trainer Institute held in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
We were thrilled to collaborate with THP. They work with more than 100 village clusters in Bangladesh to advance human dignity through community development work, gender equity promotion, and alleviating poverty.
They have recently begun to incorporate environmental issues in their programming and we focused our collaboration on integrating the Green Leaders Academy curriculum in their youth-focused programs.
In November and December, THP staff members Amzad Hossain and Sumiya trained 110 university students and young professionals on climate change, how youth can make a difference, and how to enhance their leadership skills. More than 95% of them are interested in enrolling in our full 15-module Green Leaders Academy.
Bangladesh is known as one of the most climate-vulnerable countries. Although there are significant challenges, we believe that a groundswell of youth leadership can change this trajectory. And we're looking forward to more collaboration with THP to support these newly trained environmental leaders to start taking action in their communities and across Bangladesh.
