AMRAO MANUSH TAKES PART FOR THE FIRST TIME IN DHAKA LIT FEST 2019 WITH PHWC

SAJIDA’s Amrao Manush Program for the very first time, partook in Dhaka Lit Fest 2019 alongside Psychological Health and Wellness Clinic (PHWC) from 7 – 9 November at the Bangla Academy. In addition to the unofficial launching of Amrao Manush’s book, which is based on the inspirational lives of the program’s beneficiaries, attendees also had a chance to engage with the children from the program present at the event and listen to their stories first-hand. The children also enjoyed their time at the event through participating in different activities like drawing, and the “Royal Bina Putol Nach” among others.

 

Simultaneously, PHWC created awareness on mental health issues along with the stigma surrounding it at the Dhaka Lit Fest, and held brief counselling sessions for attendees throughout the three days the event took place.
