Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday asked the authorities concerned to enhance the financial capacity of the Joyeeta Foundation as a specialised organisation.

PM’s deputy secretary KM Shakhawat Moon briefed reporters after the meeting.

He said the Prime Minister put emphasis on enhancing the capacity of the grassroots-level women entrepreneurs and improve the Foundation’s organisational strength.

Sheikh Hasina also said women entrepreneurs should be groomed as skilled ones so that they could engage in multipurpose entrepreneurship.

The Prime Minister said the main aim of the Joyeeta Foundation, an initiative of the government, is to eradicate poverty and make women self-reliant so that they could live in society with greater dignity.

Sheikh Hasina also briefly described various social safety net programmes of the government, including old age and widow allowances, taken for the country’s women.

The Prime Minister put emphasis on building the Joyeeta Foundation in such a way so that the women involved with it could take pride of this organisation.
