Church in Bangladesh Move to End Female Poverty and Child Marriages with Boost in Education

The Church of Bangladesh is helping women end poverty by providing accommodation for female students in an area where child marriage was common. The Diocese of Kushtia has provided two college hostels in Rajshahi and Meherpur that houses 21 students, aged between 17 and 19.

The students attend the Women’s Degree College in Meherpur, where they are studying arts, commerce and science. Facilities are provided for them in the hostel.

The Meherpur district once had the highest rate of child marriage across Bangladesh – with a rate of 64 per cent. But the area declared itself to be “child marriage free” earlier this year when some 15,000 people attended a meeting and made a pledge against it.
