My Story: Nupur and Biplab Howlader, a married couple pursuing welding careers together

While child marriage rates are slowly decreasing in Bangladesh, 66% of girls are still married before the age of 18. Marriage at an early age has many implications on a young woman’s life; one thing that it does not usually translate to though is gender equality. Nupur and Biplab married early, but are now learning skills to work together in Bangladesh’s fast growing welding sector.
