MASTUL Foundation’s self-empowerment project has helped around 560 families to be self-sufficient by providing people with training, financial support, and primary resources. It is a step towards the Sustainable Development Goal 1: No poverty.

We have targeted to help 1000 underprivileged people who are under the poverty line all across Dhaka, Feni, and Cox’s Bazar. With our help, they will be self-employed and capable of taking care of their families.

We have given capital to people who are unable to provide for their families in the form of sewing machines, livestock, small shops, and rickshaws along with the necessary training for financial independence.

Why Self-Employment Matters

Bangladesh is gradually becoming a modernized country with complete bureaucratic organizations everywhere. Bureaucracy needs both specialized and non-specialized labor. Labors with lesser specialization skills get poorly paid to bear the expense of the whole their family. Moreover, migration is an important feature in today’s Bangladesh. People migrate to towns hugely for a better life while they have to face a deteriorated one. So, it’s really important to build up skilled labor power. Also since there is huge competition in the job sectors, creating chances for self-employment is important.  

Specific Problem

  1. Lack of knowledge about how to use your physical ability in this ever-changing economy.  
  2. Lack of skills, resources, and opportunities for working and earning.  

Other Problems

  1. Unplanned and temporary work experiences in return for low payment can make things worse.
  2. Frustration and drive towards deviant life.
