Compass CHT-FLR program celebrated International Women's Day 2022

On the occasion of International Women’s Day (IWD) 2022 on 8th March, the Compass Chittagong Hill Tracts Forest Landscape Restoration (CHT-FLR) project organized an observation event at Aungjai Para, Rowangchhari, Bandarban. 

The event focused on three key messages for CHT-FLR: leadership and household gender equality, water scarcity and ensuring water supply, and equal wages. Following the theme of IWD 2022 ‘Break the Bias’, a stage drama in the local Marma language was performed by the local community to emphasize the role of women in forest conservation. 

A total of 21 people from the Marma community actively participated in organizing the event successfully. The villagers enjoyed the drama and became aware of women's leadership through it. This event also included a painting competition for the children of the local community.
