On 26 July 2017 Sir Ciarán Devane, Chief Executive, British Council visited an English and Digital for Girls’ Education (EDGE) peer-led club in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The EDGE programme aims to improve the life prospects of adolescent girls in socio-economically marginalised communities in Bangladesh. In this prospect, this visit was arranged to learn more about the impact this programme created on the lives of the members, beneficiaries and community leaders.
The visit included an interactive question and answer session where club members, peer leaders shared their experiences, explained how they have been benefitted from the programme and how it has made an impact in their lifestyle.
The visit took place in the Korail slum of Banani, Dhaka.
