Refresher and Advanced SRHR training STITCH-project Bangladesh

29 September 2022
Jorn and Anke from CIS-VU and KIT Tropical Institute facilitated a 3-day Refresher and advanced TOT on: “Comprehensive SRHR” in the context of the Nuffic OKP STITCH-project focussing on SRHR information and services for ready-made garment workers in Bangladesh.

The training was held in Dhaka, Bangladesh last September, 3 years later after the first training in 2019 @VU Amsterdam the Netherlands. The training involved many group exercises. One of the successes during the training was to move away from talking about sexuality in a problem focussed way.

Our special guest Hasan Ashraf provided an illuminating lecture about the types and sources of exploitation and health problem RMG-workers are facing. "There is a false claim that the West is empowering BGD through the garment industry" This is a myth because empowerment equals accountability and taking responsibility from the clothing Brands (company owners) and they are doing neither!

Besides the training Anke and I also participated in the 7th Knowledge Fair "Know Better, Be Stronger!", organized by Share-Net Bangladesh on September 26th. Focussing on access to quality information on SRHR. It was a very successful event!
