“Participating in the Second Chance Education and Vocational Learning Programme has made me confident,” says Bulbul Akter, 24, a seamstress, turkey farmer and community outreach volunteer from Ukhiya Cox’s Bazar. “Now, I am known to my relatives and neighbours as a self-reliant woman. I am contributing to my family and the wider community, and I can support my daughter’s studies. I have requested that my two sisters also enrol in this programme.”

Bulbul is a student of UN Women – DanChurchAid (DCA) Second Chance Education Learning Programme being implemented in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. UN Women with its implementing partner DCA has been implementing the Second Chance Education Learning Programme in Rohingya Refugee camp and host community in Cox’s Bazar to support women and adolescent girls through a learning programme to enhance their self-reliance and empowerment.
