Bangladesh is a country of over 170 million people. The share of the population within 15-24 years is close to 20 percent and the median age of its people is a little over 20 years. Thus Bangladesh is uniquely positioned to reap the benefits of this “demographic dividend”. But how many of them have the opportunity to enter the labor market? According to official statistics, the overall unemployment rate is 4.2 percent in Bangladesh. However, the youth unemployment rate is 10.6 percent. What do these young people do? Are they studying? Are they going through training? No, not all of them. The share of youth from within the total youth population in the country who are neither in education nor in employment or training is 29.8 percent.
So in this situation, Dost Aid Bangladesh society wants to launch some initiative as like as free skill development training, mobile, laptop and other electric device repairing training, motor repairing and training for the young generation all over Bangladesh so that they can earn something after receiving the training and contribute their family.
