LIFE PROJECT CENTER - DACCA
Since September 2019, a team of Catalysts has been working to open the first Life Project Center in Bangladesh, where 55% of the population lives in slums and 2 million Youth struggle to find decent work. In Bhashantek, a shanty town north of Dhaka with more than 30,000 inhabitants, LP4Y started working in February 2020 with 10 Youth, mostly women, occupying a room lent by the community. The search continues for a building to settle the Life Project Center where work will begin to mobilize a local ecosystem. A network is being developed and partnerships are being established between businesses, civil society and local institutions. Things bode well for an effective collaboration to support the social and professional integration of the Youth who will make up the program.
*LP4Y is private limited company, non for-profit.
