MOMODa FOUNDATION in co-operation with IDE-JETRO and Florida International University begins a RCT based experiment in Gaibandha on "Whether and How Role Model Encourages Female Labor Force Participation (FLFP)?".
The objective of this study is to investigate whether the role model encourages FLFP in rural Bangladesh, and if so, how. For this objective, we conduct the randomized controlled trial (RCT). FLFP here means work outside of the home, typically in the factory (not necessarily in the garment industry). We include those jobs that Skill for Employment Investment Program (SEIP) trainees are placed after the training session.

Kunderpara, a char area at Gaibandha district. It has no grid electricity connection to any house or bazar. People of the area are suffering from acute need of electricity. MOMODa FOUNDATION realizes solar energy as an alternative source of energy which is a suitable solution to the problem. We in collaboration with Southampton University UK, started Solar Boat Charged Project to replace the kerosene lantern as the lighting source in un-electrified char households. We have installed 800 Wp Solar Panel on the roof of a boat. Every day 60 power box is charging from the Solar
