Women Entrepreneur Association of Bangladesh (WEAB)
Women Entrepreneur Association of Bangladesh (WEAB) was established in year 2000, by a select group of businesswomen. Their aim was to create a platform to help business women establish themselves in a competitive field, dominated by men.

The main object of WEAB was to develop a support system for women entrepreneur to not only improve the quality of their products, to meet the changing market demands, but also to impart training on technical know how, design development and to create marketing links for their products.

In a very short time WEAB was not only firmly established in Dhaka, drawing large number of members, but rapidly branching out all over Bangladesh, including North Bengal.

Training programmes are regularly organized for WEAB members in various fields ranging from food processing, textile designing and quality development, production of new and innovative handicrafts to export-import, indenting, even running of petrol pumps. Traditionally women of Bangladesh were mostly engaged in agro based business like cottage craft, handicraft, stitching and embroidery, cane and bamboo weaving poultry and dairy farming. Now however, more, and more women are entering production lines, like production and manufacturing of garments, of artificial jewelry, supplying dry and fresh flowers to hotels and restaurants, food catering on large scale, establishing educational institutions and setting up trendy fashion houses. WEAB has created a platform for women entrepreneur to meet and network for their mutual benefit.

WEAB organizes seminars, workshops and symposiums where business women, small, medium and large, meet and benefit through exchange and sharing of ideas and experiences. WEAB facilitates participation of entrepreneur to national and international trade fairs and exhibitions where members acquire newer and better ideas and gain immensely from the exposure.

They made us Toys: The healthy soil must not need fertilizer, pesticides, micro nutrients and other treatments, just like a healthy man. Naturally from the very beginning our soil was healthy, resistant and strong but we made it sick and weak by pouring artificial feed, nutrients and pesticides. The soil of our country has almost been destroyed due to enormous usage of chemical fertilizer and chemical pesticides.

Some national and multinational companies played some tricks establishing their chemical fertilizer, chemical pesticides, hybrid seeds, GMO, GM foods etc throughout the country and finally they are success. They snatched our own ethnic strong, nutritious and resistant varieties of seeds and replaced their some hazardous seeds those are weak, sick, less-nutrients. They made us 100% dependent. More fertilizer, irrigation, pesticides and treatment are required for their new variety crops of these hybrid and super hybrid seeds. As a result, our production costs are going up much and more but we are getting toxic crops.

We are having these toxic crops, vegetables and fruits and are facing new and severe diseases one after another day by day. As a result new and modern hospitals and clinics are increasing day by day throughout the country. The people and the govt have been expending millions of taka (money) every year in medical and in treatment purpose.
