Description and results


The project aims to ensure that Bangladeshi, Rohingya, and Burmese women affected by violent conflict are empowered to lead and participate in community-based peacebuilding and decision-making at local, national, and regional levels. Project activities include: (1) delivering capacity-building workshops on leadership, peacebuilding, including economic empowerment; (2) providing literacy and numeracy classes to encourage political and economic participation of targeted beneficiaries; (3) facilitating formal exchanges between youth leaders to share good practices on peace and security; and (4) advocating for the improvement of the situation of Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh, primarily women and girls.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased access to information and services for Rohingya Bangladeshi women, adolescent girls and girls in refugee camps and host communities in Cox’s Bazar, resulting in their empowerment and ability to participate in community decision-making; (2) increased economic opportunities for young women leaders in Cox’s Bazar to improve their socio-economic status for them and their families; (3) increased leadership and advocacy skills for young women and gender equality allies in Bangladesh to meaningfully participate in, influence, and lead peacebuilding and political processes; and (4) stronger political will of national, regional, and global actors to implement UN resolutions on Women, Peace and Security.
