'Travelettes of Bangladesh' is an organization for female travelers, the first of its kind in this country. At this moment the group has more than 23,000 female members. Members of this group have travelled to different corners of the country and they hope to continue to do so.Travelettes of Bangladesh is going to organize ‘Travel & Travelettes Photography Exhibition Season -2’ and publish 2nd edition of the magazine 'ভ্রমণ কন্যা' / 'Travel Girl' to celebrate two years of our organization.The goal behind this undertaking is to inspire women, along with men, for traveling; and also to showcase the different tourist attractions of our country to people from home and abroad.Last year we arranged the very first season of our photography exhibition 'IFIC BANK presents Travel & Travelettes photography exhibition-sesason 01' and our annual publication ' IFIC BANK presents Travel Girl -ভ্রমণকন্যার আত্মপ্রকাশ .
Travelettes of Bangladesh is not only just an ordinary online travel group, rather it's a platform of 24,000+ girls of Bangladesh. It promotes empowerment of women by telling them, teaching them to raise their voices,going out of their home, speaking out,seeing the beauty of the country through their own eyes. Sounds normal maybe, but being a Bangladeshi, where girls are taught to lower their gazes, be confined to their homes, that's actually saying something. Our main motto is: 'Empower women through traveling'.
We believe,traveling broadens your outlook.If you can see the world for yourself,you are bound to take a step forward in your life. Gender discrimination? No way.We only want equalization. We want to step up to the position,where the men in our country are and then step more & more forward.
