আজ আমরা সমস্বরে অভিবাদন জানাতে চাই জলকণা ক্যাটালিস্ট কার্যক্রমের প্রাক্তন শিক্ষার্থী মোঃ আদনান হোসেনকে। প্রতিভা’র সভাপতি ও ব্যবস্থাপনা পরিচালক হিসেবে দায়িত্ব পালনের পাশাপাশি আদনান ইটস হিউম্যানিটি ফাউন্ডেশন (IHF)’রও প্রতিষ্ঠাতা ও সভাপতি।

তিনি মনে করেন, বিনিময় কার্যক্রমের অভিজ্ঞতা তাঁর পেশা জীবনের মোড় ঘুরিয়ে দিয়েছে, কেননা যুক্তরাষ্ট্রে অবস্থানকালে লব্ধ জ্ঞান ও অভিজ্ঞতার কারণেই তাঁর ব্যবসা উদ্যোগগুলো দ্রুত সম্প্রসারিত হয়েছে।

তিনি ইটস হিউম্যানিটি ফাউন্ডেশন (IHF) পরিচালিত বাংলাদেশের প্রথম ডিজিটাল ভ্রাম্যমাণ বিদ্যালয় চাকার স্কুল চালু করতে সহায়তা করেন যেখানে ৫০০ জন শিখন-প্রতিবন্ধী যুববয়সীকে বিনামূল্যে শিক্ষা, স্বাস্থ্যসেবা ও খাদ্য সহায়তা প্রদান করা হচ্ছে।

আদনানের আরেকটি উদ্যোগ প্রতিভা’র আওতায় টঙ্গী, সাভার, গাজীপুর ও সৈয়দপুরের অধিবাসী নারীদেরকে দক্ষ কারুশিল্পী ও উদ্যোক্তা হয়ে উঠতে প্রশিক্ষণ প্রদান করা হচ্ছে।

আগামী শনিবার আমরা কাকে নিয়ে আসছি জানতে চোখ রাখুন।

Today, we want to give a shoutout to 🇧🇩 Md. Adnan Hossain, an alumnus of the Jolkona-Catalyst program. Adnan is the founder and chairman of It's Humanity Foundation - IHF and also serves as the chairman and managing director of Prothiba.

He recounts his exchange program as a key turning point in his career as his entrepreneurial ventures expanded rapidly due to the knowledge and experience he gained in the United States.

Adnan helped launch the Chakar School by IHF, the first digital mobile school in Bangladesh, which currently supports more than 500 youth with learning disabilities by providing free education, health care, and food access.

Prothiba, Adnan’s other venture, provides women living in Tongi, Savar Gazipur, and Saidpur, with training to become skilled artisans and entrepreneurs.

Stay tuned to see who we will feature next Saturday.

Our Artisans have learnt turning old sarees into Traditional Kanthas!!

Don't we all have sarees kept in the closet which haven't been wore in ages? Protibha can redesign them into precious Handstiched Kanthas. So why not redesign your closet while contributing to empowerment of rural women?

Having access to work from home and flexible working hours was the only demand of our Artisans. Because, once they have fair and reliable income to support their families financially, they become more responsible to send children to school, put nutritious food on the table and fight societal patriarchy around.

You see, our part-time artisans are full time community builders!

Last Ramadan, we raised fund to provide sewing machines for our trained Artisans, who were ready to begin their small entrepreneural journey after receiving the tailoring training from Protibha.

We are extremely proud of them for making the best use of the sewing machines even amidst the pandemic, stitching their dreams together.

Empowered mothers can raise empowered families. It is incredible to witness the paradigm shift in patriarchal mindset of the communities we work in. The transformation of "my wife is unable to earn" to "my wife supports our family financially too"

The journey of arranging financial freedom for marginalized women hasn't been easy, but it is worthy.

Our Story

Protibha aims to create a sustainable earning opportunity for the underprivileged women of the rural patriarchy community where women are not allowed to work outside home. They send their children to work instead of school to act as an extra earning member of the family.

We train women in rural and sub-urban areas on sewing, tailoring, stitching, block printing and crochet. From the professional training sessions, these women artisans can actually earn through Protibha by developing their existing handicraft skills. This opportunity can give them income solvency and right to make important decisions of the family. Most importantly in return, they can send their children to school instead of work. Protibha started it's journey with 5 women. At present above 250 women are involved in this project. Our 4 different training centers are running at Saidpur, Tongi and Boardbazar.

Besides, we encourage the local vendors and give them a platform to sell their handcrafted products through us. We sell rickshaw painted ceramic and glassware products as an profit making source of the project. We chose rickshaw art to work with because Protibha aims to uphold the Bangladeshi culture in global map. We want to keep the dieing art and artisans alive.
