Strengthening Bangladesh through multilingual educationListen /
The Chittagong Hill Tracts is one of the most diverse regions of Bangladesh. Access to basic education has been a major challenge for young people in this rural area. The distance to education facilities has contributed to the low enrolment of young children.
In 2003 the UN's development program implemented a decade-long education initiative designed to support the government's efforts to achieve basic education in the region.
