AUW Language Lab

Through our partnership with the Asian University for Women (AUW), Connecther is working to establish a language lab in Bangladesh, to serve students from 15 different countries, most of whom receive a full scholarship (due to lack of resources). The aim of this language lab is to provide support for language instruction and learning through technology. This lab will help AUW provide additional technological support in enhancing reading, writing and critical thinking skills.

Superhero Without A Cape

HazeraBegum is determined to give her children the bright future that every child deserves. This Bangladeshi woman is the "mother" of 40 children, most the children of sex workers in bustling Dhaka.


Hazera understands their plight because she has lived it herself. After she ran away from home at the age of 8 to flee an abusive stepmother, she eventually was forced into sex work to survive. She has never forgotten the daily struggle for dignity and safety that is the lot of sex workers and their children.


Without Hazera's care, many of these children would be left on the streets while their mothers work, where they would be exposed to drugs, violence, and harassment. She is determined to raise them right and give them an education.
