In an international comparison, Bangladesh is at the bottom of the league when it comes to education - despite compulsory education. Almost every second woman in Bangladesh can neither read nor write. The YWCA programs train girls and young women to read, write letters and solve simple math problems. They are also informed about health issues and their rights. Thanks to this new knowledge, they are less at risk of being forced to get married, become infected with HIV or die from the complications of childbirth.
