As well all know women empowerment is the prelude to the sustainable development of the country, the Government takes various steps to materialize it. Along with government, some other organizations also have come up with many ideas and helping women continue to thrive. The women empowerment can be defined to promoting women's sense of self-worth, their ability to determine their own choices, and their right to influence social change for themselves and others.
Aastha Trust is the one of the organizations that has taken the initiative to promote education, skills development training and professional development for women.

They take proper steps to provide them skill-development and training, which in turns provides them a respectable way of living.

Shoma Zahid, Founder, Chairperson of Aastha Trust said, "We are building capacity of the women through different skill development program."
"For this we are doing need analysis of the community and as per the skill gap of that locality we train the women. For example,  tailoring, block print etc.
Training the trainer program for teachers in my school Uttara. We are empowering teachers as a shadow supervisor so that eventually she can get a better job in other schools or upgraded her designation in Mahaad School," she added.

"We are working to involve more women by developing their soft skills along with other technical skills which is essential for this competitive job market. It includes computer literacy skills which will prepare them for the digital era.
We empowered women in Mahaad School. Our Vice Principal is a lady, three supervisors are lady, and admin head is lady. We consciously have to train women and empower them to work," she remarked.
SDG 5 is focused on pursuing the main goal of real and sustained gender equality in all aspects of women and girls' lives which includes  ending gender disparities, eliminating violence against women and girls' lives, eliminating early and forced marriage,  securing equal participation and opportunities. Astha is also helping women to reach those goals.
"To ensure SDG 5 we are creating skilled resources of women which are lacking in different work field.  Besides, we are raising awareness in the community so that women can have better understanding about their basic rights, take part in decision making etc. and males become ready to accept the society of empowered women. We all should work hand in hand with Government to make a beautiful Bangladesh.
