Already over 100 girls, who are RMG workers, are studying at AUW free of cost with support from their respective employers.

During the years of studying, the factory authorities pay regular monthly salaries to the workers enrolled in AUW so that their families do not face any hardship.

Faruque Hassan said BGMEA would encourage its member factories to send female workers, who have talent and aspirations, to the university for higher studies and help them to pursue their dreams.

BGMEA would also request stakeholders including brands, development partners, and others to financially support the initiative of creating higher education opportunities for female garment workers in Bangladesh, he added.
