Sumit Banik, Master Trainer of Bangladesh Nari Progati Sangha, spoke on the purpose and importance of training and involvement of female mentors in girl’s club operation as a training supervisor.

The chief guest at the inaugural session said, ‘Adolescents and young women in these areas have been lagging behind in their health issues for a long time, and they are not as proper conscious as they should be. And in many cases, this unconsciousness becomes the cause of long-term illness in women’s lives. And through the involvement of this project, adolescents and young women will get a supportive environment to increase their life skills, they will be able to know about the good and bad aspects of their body and health. I believe that this training will play an effective role in enhancing the skills of the mentors in conducting the sessions at the girls’ club.’
