European Union (EU) Ambassador to Bangladesh Charles Whiteley on Tuesday met adolescents benefiting from the EU-funded Accelerating Protection for Children (APC) project.
The Ambassador talked to them and wanted to know their issues and assured of looking into their issues.
Ambassador Whiteley laid emphasis on spreading such programme in other parts of the country to protect the rights of the children.
During the visit at the project site in Kalshi, Mirpur, the girls thanked the EU and requested the EU Ambassador to continue the support for children from underprivileged backgrounds.
“Great partnership between EU, UNICEF and GoB (government of Bangladesh) on empowerment of marginalised adolescents- thanks for the opportunity to witness first hand the activities at Kurmitola Adolescent Club to mark International Day of the Girl Child,” the EU Ambassador tweeted after visiting the place.
