Our Correspondent : Rima Sultana Rimu, who has been included in BBC's annual list of 100 inspiring and influential women around the world, is active in working to prevent violence against women and child marriage. "Young women must play an essential role in sustaining peace and preventing violence against them and child marriage across the country. We should prevent it collectively. As a woman, I am very much interested to work for women to establish their rights," she said" "When I went to work in the Rohingya camp, I noticed the discrimination against women very closely. Therefore,
it is necessary to create awareness among women by educating them," says Rima, who teaches at a school in Cox's Bazar's Ramu upazila. "I am grateful to my organization Jago Nari Unnayan Sangstha and the recognition will inspire me to do more creative and humanitarian work in the future." "People need to play a role for the welfare of themselves. The youth should not give up doing good deeds. We must always strive to meet the challenges." For several years, Rima Sultana has been propelling humanitarian activities to address the Rohingya refugee situation - by promoting education for Rohingya refugee women and children, eliminating gender inequality, propelling age-based literacy activities, and promoting peace, security and women advancement through radio broadcasts and theater performances. In 2019, while serving for Jago Nari Unnayan Sangstha, she was elected the girl's ambassador of the UN Department of Women's Affairs. She is also a member of Cox's Bazar-based Young Women Leaders for Peace and an activist for the Global Network of Women Peacebuilders working for the welfare of adolescents from conflict-ridden countries.
