Hello, I Am - Resources

On this page you can learn more about early marriage and teenage pregnancy violate girls’ rights and what our programme Hello, I Am contains. With this pogramme we enable young people in Bangladesh to break harmful social norms and have more say in decisions about their futures.

Positive role models

Hello, I Am creates a supportive social and family environment in which young people can make informed choices about their sexual and reproductive health. Through a series of media and face-to-face programmes, role models will raise awareness on harmful practices like child marriage and teenage pregnancy. Alternative behaviours, attitudes, or beliefs will be shown and discussed. These media and face-to-face programmes seek to encourage community leaders and parents to become more supportive of girls’ aspirations
