BRAC Bank, BFDS empower female freelancers

BRAC Bank TARA, in partnership with the Bangladesh Freelancer Development Society (BFDS), has successfully organized the fourth edition of the Shabolombi TARA programme, marking a significant step towards empowering female freelancers in Bangladesh.
This innovative initiative was held in Sylhet recently, where more than 150 aspiring female freelancers received comprehensive training to kickstart their careers in the burgeoning freelancing industry.

The Shabolombi TARA initiative is a testament to BRAC Bank and BFDSs commitment to fostering an inclusive digital economy. By aiming to train at least 1,600 women across the country, the programme seeks to eliminate barriers and create equal opportunities for women of all ages and sectors.

This effort underlines the partners vision of promoting financial independence and self-reliance among women through the power of freelancing.

Mohammed Yahya, Cluster Manager of the Sylhet Region for BRAC Bank, and Dr. Tanjiba Rahman, Chairman of BFDS, alongside senior officials from both organizations, led the training sessions.

In addition to skill development, BRAC Bank is committed to offering banking services tailored to the needs of these aspiring freelancers.

By doing so, the bank aims to extend financial independence and enhance the banking knowledge of the participants, further supporting their journey towards economic empowerment.

Both organizations hope that the Shabolombi TARA programme will continue to inspire and equip women with the necessary tools to thrive in the freelancing world, fostering a more inclusive and equitable digital economy in Bangladesh.
