Plan International

I feel proud to represent Bangladesh and do it wherever I go. The 5th Asian Youth Forum - co-hosted by the Asian Development Bank and Plan International- was one of the biggest platforms where I had the opportunity to showcase the issues and potential of youth living in our country.

Increasing Employment Opportunities- The Tipping Point: The Youth Bulge and the Sub-Saharan African Labor Market

Brookings Institute
The demographic dividend has been touted as a potential source of growth for the African continent and its relatively young population. In the same vein, it comes with the challenge of employment creation that can absorb the large cohort of youth that is set to enter sub-Saharan
