Change Associates Limited facilitated some training sessions for the workers of Epic group. The training was about personal hygiene and water-borne diseases, nutrition, menstruation, anemia, maternal health and family planning, infant, young and child feeding, preventing STI and HIV/AIDS, Serious illness, Malaria, Dengue and Reproductive Cancer, Occupational Health and Safety etc. After these training were successfully conducted, the workers wrote a script of a drama with information from the project. Being self-motivated, the workers rehearsed themselves and staged the drama. These training increased the workers and also the factory management’s overall awareness of health-related issues. The factory also acknowledged that due to these training, relationships between management and workers, between one worker and the other, between management members, and between male and female workers have greatly improved.
