Australian support for human rights project
Bangladesh Legal Aid and Services Trust (BLAST) will receive Tk 3.72 million for a human rights project this year under Australian government's Human Rights Small Grants Scheme (HRSGS), says a press release.
HRSGS is a worldwide programme funding projects that build developing countries' capacity to promote and protect human rights.
The project of BLAST aims to safeguard the rights of workers and consumers by assessing the capacity of government agencies involved in worker and consumer safety. It will also consult with government and civil society to bring about legislative and policy changes.
