Project “Fight for Equality” Inauguration JCI Dhaka West

JCI Dhaka West wanted to make an impact in the society through a project named “Fight for Equality” dedicated for the third gender community of Bangladesh, aligning with Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) no 5 of United Nations.

According to the Department of Social Services report, the third gender population in Bangladesh is about 11 thousand and the majority of them have health and toilet issues. They don’t have access to the public toilet. To keep that in mind, our project focuses mainly on the daily requirements of the community. We’ve have so far arranged 3 public toilets who will be available for third gender too in such crowded places in Dhaka as Shahbag, Gulistan & Jatrabari.

Also a part of our project, we will also arrange a campaign to get them medical check-ups. They will be exempt from the diagnostic center till a time, and a great discount will provide for the diagnosis.
