Fair and Lovely Foundation will continue its mission to empower the Bangladeshi women economically through education by continuing the “Supplementary Education Program” for the third year running. The Fair & Lovely Foundation has signed an agreement with the Faria Lara Foundation on May 17, 2007. These tow organizations have worked together to improve the lives of rural women in Bangladesh. On this occasion Mr. Rakesh Mohan, Chairman and Managing Director of Unilever Bangladesh Ltd. and Mr. Anwar Hossain Khan, Senior Vice President of Faria Lara Foundation have signed on behalf of their respective organizations.

This program was initiated in Bamna upazilla of Barguna district.
