IDB-BISEW Madrasah Project Print E-mail

In Bangladesh, institutions of three streams – General, Madrasah and Vocational – delivering education in parallel, are engaged in the process of human resource development. Quite unfortunately, Madrasahs, occupying about one-fifth share in education delivery, are not ready to take part actively in the process of human resource development necessary both for its survival and national interest. Only a minor group of graduates is absorbed in some sorts of socio-religious services while majority are excluded from the mainstream socio-economic activities. That is why; IDB-BISEW has taken an initiative to turn Madrasah students into a productive workforce. It has established 6 Madrasahs in different areas of Bangladesh under its pilot scheme and introduced Dakhil Vocational courses for the first time in Bangladesh.

4. Enhancing the social standing of graduates of the vocational programme
