Fatema is one of 1,400 women who work at the Versatile Apparel factory in Dhaka. In addition to her regular duties, Fatema serves as a peer educator teaching fellow garment workers about family planning.
Fatema’s own experience gives her a keen understanding of the transformative impact of contraception. Married at age 10, she had her first of two children at age 13. Now 29, Fatema has no desire to be pregnant again. “I’m contributing to the betterment of the community,” notes Fatema, who takes pride in working at a factory where the focus is on employees’ health.
