I am Hasiba work with the poor women and disadvantaged young girls for their betterment. I learned sewing and
started selling the produced goods, many women of the community asked me to learn sewing and want to be an entrepreneur. While percentage of women increased, many young girls eager to learn sewing and designing to be the income holder for her family. So, I made arrangements for them and so the new journey of my life began. Now, I run a CSO having hundreds of women trained and a group of young girls who represent the organization in their profession. These women and girls are the regular participants in different development programs carried out by UKSP to provide advocacy. Overtime, many organizations are became the development partners of UKSP to bring positive and social
changes through funded projects by the donors like GoB & Action Aid Bangladesh. My organization is connected with many networking forums & partners too like Girls Not Brides, Youth for Change & more.
