In 2024, RISE (Reimagining Industry to Support Equality) Project started its operations in seven new RMG factories through a kick-off meeting along with 12,667 workers in Gazipur and Dhaka districts. One of the most important programs of the RISE project in these seven factories will work to improve the lives of garment workers through the implementation of RISE Digital.

The project will provide training to garment workers, especially women workers, on health, financial management and education, coping with stress and building healthy workplace relationships. Besides, this project will provide training to RMG factory officials and management on problem solving and building good working relationships.
