In 2009, we joined the Scandinavian project “Work2Learn”. The project is a cooperation between several companies, Save the Children and the Bangladesh organization UCEP (Underprivileged Children’s Educational Programs).

The project aims to improve the educational access for disadvantaged adolescents between ages 16 and 18 years in Bangladesh. The adolescents go through a nine-month vocational textile education, followed by three months practical training. After the training they will be offered jobs as skilled workers at factories with good standards.
