Village-based solar home system training session

A group of rural Bangladeshi women and their children wearing colourful traditional dress receive home-based training in installing and maintaining solar panels in the rural town of Bogra in the Rajshahi division of northern Bangladesh. Improving access to technical and vocational skills development for women in non-traditional trades is slowly working towards removing the prevalent gender stereotyping and occupational segregation which has existed for many years. © ILO
