Mafusa
Seamstress, Mother

Mafusa learned to sew from her mother, Diwilara. Now, they are business partners, working together to run a shop where they create the most exquisite saris and kurtas in Bangladesh. Diwilara gained her sewing skills through the People’s Institution and found a way to provide for her family. She then taught Mafusa to sew, and together, Diwilara and Mafusa taught Mafusa’s daughter. Today, Mafusa is a young woman benefitting from new economic opportunity and a young mother instilling in her daughter the same strength and love of beauty passed down to her by Dwilara.

Fajima
Age: 15, Grade: 9

Too many of Fajima’s friends have been betrothed and taken out of school for marriage. So Fajima and her fellow classmates have decided to change the story. Not only do these young women advocate for leadership and educational opportunities for girls, they also serve as People’s Institution representatives, elected to join their elders in advancing community development initiatives, extending loans to local female entrepreneurs, and educating their larger community on the downfalls of childhood marriage. Fajima has boldly stood for the rights of girls, and now it’s time for us to boldly stand with Fajima.

Rozina
Chairwoman, The People’s Institution

For Rozina, the true beauty of the People’s Institution shines in how different people hold each other accountable to reinvest local resources in ways that promise to bring positive change to Bangladesh. Rozina acts on the front lines of such change, bringing a special focus to the People’s Institution’s healthcare initiatives. This means Rozina assists mothers in proper feeding, nutrition, and weighing of their newborns and consults with families about care for their differently abled children, reporting back each week to the rest of the People’s Institution. Rozina is one of thousands of women using her voice to bring hope to the people of Bangladesh.
