Dhaka Bureau Policy Times : Nine girls from Bangladesh Kandarchar village in Jamalpur district have learned to make masks during the COVID-19 pandemic thanks to sewing and tailoring classes provided by USAID’s SHOUHARDO III activity implemented by CARE Bangladesh.

With the demand for masks increasing since the pandemic, these girls are producing and selling washable and reusable cloth masks. Recently, they received an order for 1,000 masks for their community. USAID is replicating this initiative in other districts where it works to assist youth who have lost their livelihoods due to COVID-19. At the peak of the lockdown, 280 SHOUHARDO III youth participants (220 males and 60 females) successfully adapted to the situation and were able to find local employment opportunities in mask production, electrical work and construction.
