Chair of Trustees

Runner up at Bond International Development Awards!

My name is Hena Akter, I am 17 years old, my father is a fisherman and mother is a housewife. My sister Happy Sultana is a student at the Catch up Education Center, supported by POPI & Learning for Life. I was supporting my family by working in the dry fish factory, which I did not like because I was given too much work by the owner and sometimes treated badly by the men at the factory. If I did not go to work my family would struggle to give us food.

Last year, I was contacted by a community Facilitator Ms Salma from my sister’s school, she told me that that I could receive a vocational training on tailoring and extra support to buy a sewing machine.
