Overview:

In Bangladesh, many girls at their early adolescent period are getting married and becoming mother without any preparation and knowledge on reproductive health, sexuality, nutrition and dietary habits, personal health and hygiene which magnify their risk of malnutrition, physical and mental illness, and even death at child birth. Similarly, they are also vulnerable to STI/HIV/AIDS, pre-marital sex, sexual abuse, unwanted pregnancy, violence, coercion, delinquency, drug addiction, exploitation, deprivation, repression, abduction and trafficking. To make a comprehensive change in this sector, there is no alternative way without creating awareness among the girls and educating them as they are the future mother, so started its activities in 2012 which is a registered non-profit, non-political and social development organization.
