Project Description:


Every year, countless children drop out of school and lose the opportunity to complete their education in Bangladesh. This problem has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. ADRA Bangladesh has taken up this issue and has paved the way for underprivileged children to take advantage of employment opportunities. In 2022, ADRA Bangladesh launched the Makeup Your Dream Project (MYDP) to provide vocational training and employment support to out-of-school youth in the city of Dhaka.


In 2022, the project successfully trained 37 beauticians from over 50 participants. They received 3 months long in-class beautification training in hair, skincare, and make-up, and were linked to local beauty parlors and skin care shops for the 3 months internship. Additionally, job fairs, community service, networking sessions for the beauty parlors, and community awareness workshops were held to support the participants to practice their skills and get support from the community.

Thanks to the support, 35 out of 37 graduates were successfully employed. Besides, some of them could generate income at home with the make-up set the project provided. For many of them, it was their first job and income.
