Mother Nasima wanted to marry her daughter off when she was only 14 due to economic crises and social pressure. Her daughter sought support from the Hello, I Am programme and persuaded her mother to attend parent group meetings.

Now I’ll support her to fulfil her dreams.”

Hello, I Am was a 4-year programme working toward a supportive social environment in which young people in Bangladesh, especially adolescent girls and young women, can make informed choices about and enjoy their sexual and reproductive health and rights. It aims to realize a society in which girls and boys are equal, where girls and women have the same rights and chances as boys and men. The programme is led by Rutgers and implemented in collaboration with PSTC, RHSTEP, DSK and BBC Media Action Bangladesh.
