We are going to ensure women’s safety, education, health & sanitation which is a big problem in Bangladesh.
Problems: Bangladesh is the number one cotton importer in the world. Bangladesh can only produce 3% cotton of its total demand. The production cost of cotton products is very high. 95% women don’t use sanitary napkin because they can’t afford it. [Report: Daily Star]. Approximately 10 lakh Rohingya Refugee is staying in Bangladesh at present who are unemployed. 60% garment workers will lose their job by 2030 because of this high cost. [Report: Daily Star]
Solution: To create job sector for those 60% garment workers. To make employed the 10 lakh Rohingya Refugees. To make self-employed the 95% women who are not allowed to work outside. To replace the costly imported cotton by domestic banana fiber.
In banana plantations, after the fruits are harvested, the
trunks or stems will be wasted. Billion tons of stems and leaves
are thrown away annually. Such waste provides obtainable
sources of fibers, which leads to the reduction of other natural
and synthetic fibers' production that requires extra energy,
fertilizer, and chemical. The properties of banana fiber are
good absorbent, highly breathable, quickly dry with high tensile strength.
