Women Affairs Advocacy Programme
Project Period: May 1999 – December 2000
Funding Agency: CIDA
It was an innovative idea in Bangladesh to conduct a campaign to highlight different women affairs by preparing and publishing ‘Illustrated News Features’ in news media. About 60 items were prepared in both Bangali and English language. Most of the major newspapers and newsmagazines published the items with due credit. None of those items were dropped. The project activities were highly appreciated from the readers. Some development organisations have been using some of those articles, news-features as tools to develop their staff and aware their beneficiaries.
