Youths of the country have demanded creation of employments facilitating them to make easier job search in varying degrees of qualifications, reports BSS.
They also demanded for creating more formal jobs in diverse sectors, such as science and technology and building more day care centres.
This was revealed in a survey titled `Voices of the Youth: Synthesis of Youth Consultations in Bangladesh', carried out recently among 23 youth groups by the BRAC in Chittagong, Dhaka, Rajshahi and Sylhet. The major variations in the youth groups were made on the basis of gender, socio-economic status, education, religion, ethnicity and location.
The survey found that the major causes of dropping out from education are poverty and child labour, early marriage, lack of application in studies, limited opportunities for further education, uncertain returns to education given the current labour market situation and low levels of community awareness about the value of education.
