Gender Mainstream Project: Coastal Women's Electrification

The video clip tells us about a World Bank financed solar electrification project in southern coastal area of Bangladesh. The purpose of this gender mainstreaming project is to transfer the technology to poor rural women and create a sense of diversifying in rural society. 25 less educated, vulnerable.women were selected for the project so that they can change themselves and change the life of their community. This project is replicated in India, Pakistan,Afghanistan and several African countries.
