Business Desk :
Bangladesh is going to send caregivers to Japan for the first time this year opening a new avenue of remittance inflow.
A total of seven women aged between 18 and 23 years, hailing from different districts of the country, are taking final training at Bangladesh-German Technical Training Center (BGTTC) in the city, BGTTC Principal Rina Akhter Jahan said, reports BSS.
Popularity of care giving is increasing day by day as a profession across the world, Rina said, adding that many women are interested in the profession as there is no requirement of diploma degree on nursing and special skills in this regard.
A total of 25 girls from across the country applied through online for the post of caregiver responding to an advertisement circulated by Bureau of Manpower Employment and Training (BMET), she said.
Nine of them were selected through written and oral tests. Out of the nine, seven women, coming from Barishal, Sunamganj, Khulna and Bandarban districts, have finally been selected for sending to Japan this year, she added.
According to a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed recently between Bangladesh and International Manpower Organization of Japan (IM Japan), trainings are given to the intending people to go to Japan with overseas jobs, Rina said.
The required educational qualification for the post of caregiver is Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) and general knowledge on medical equipments along with skills on Japanese language and culture, she said, adding that the women who can write and speak in Japanese language are selected for the post of caregiver.
The women will be given a month-long training in Japan before joining their respective workplaces, the BGTTC principal said, adding that they could send Taka 80,000 to 100,000 to their families in the country in a month that will play a vital role in the development of the country's economy.
BGTTC Instructor Sohel Prince said the women who will go to Japan as caregivers are quickly learning the Japanese language and culture. Most of them are students of honours courses while some of them are graduates.
Degree passed Sabiha Anwar Sonia is going to Japan as a caregiver after taking training on Japanese language from the district Technical Training Center. She said it is a good initiative. Many women will come to this profession to find their employment.
Japan has the highest life expectancy in the world. The average life expectancy of the country is 87 years. As a result, the number of the elderly people is increasing day by day creating a demand of recruiting caregivers for those people.
Different countries, including the Philippine, Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam, of the world have been sending caregivers to Japan while Bangladesh is going to join with those countries in sending caregivers to Japan from this year.
