Retrieved from http://www.equip123.net/JEID/articles/3/Girls’StipendPrograminBangladesh.pdf on [insert month] [insert day], [insert year]. Abstract The Female Stipend Program (FSP) was created in 1982 in Bangladesh to help increase the enrolment and retention of girls in secondary schools. Implemented initially in six areas only, the program was so successful that it was extended in 1994. This paper, based on a desk study of the FSP for the Bangladesh office of the Department for International Development to evaluate the program’s effects, is particularly pertinent for other developing countries seeking to support girls’ education as part of the effort to meet EFA and Millennium Development Goals. Introduction Since its independence, Bangladesh has addressed girls’ education primarily as a means of readying girls for “enlightened motherhood.’ (Chanana, 1994) or to enter professions thought to be suited to women. The 1974 Qudrat-e-Khuda Education Commission Report asserted that ‘women’s education should be such as to be of help to them in their domestic life’, and stressed that subjects such as ‘child-care, the nursing of...

Peter Singer

...In Peter Singer’s essay “The Singer Solution to World Poverty,” he explores the possibilities of each and every American giving up about 2/3 of his/her income. However, rather than simply talking of his own solution as another theory, he tells the reader in so many words (literally) that he/she is wrong. A large chunk of the essay is basically a big middle finger to everyone reading it. It is almost as though Singer wanted to invoke anger out of the reader so that he/she would then go and donate money to charity, so as to say something along the lines of “You lookie here, Singer, I’m not who you say I am.” Some people might think that Singer is just out of his mind, but I think he was angering the reader by making harsh accusations on purpose. Singer opens his essay with a ridiculous story from a film about a fictional woman named Dora. In the story, Dora is a “retired schoolteacher who makes ends meet by sitting at the station writing letters for illiterate people.” First off, how could anyone make enough money to live comfortably like that? She ends up selling a homeless boy to what she is told to be a “wealthy family.” Her neighbor somehow knows that this is not the case, that the boy will be put to death and his organs sold. Second of all, how does the neighbor know this? This accusation is not explained. Dora then goes home with her brand new television, feels guilty, and takes the boy back. Why would Dora do this without further research? She has no proof other than......

Peter Singer Famine

...Peter Singer – “Famine, Affluence, and Morality” Dora Crawford Prof. David Tredinnick 12/19/2012 When it comes to the article "Famine, Affluence, and Morality" mostly argues about not one but more than several things. In some point most people can agree with his arguments unlike others whom may not see his point of view. One of these arguments was lack of food. This was brought up or inspired by the starvation of Bangladesh his main focus was that if one can use one's wealth to reduce suffering for example, by aiding famine-relief efforts without any significant reduction in the well-being of oneself or others, it is immoral not to do so. According to Singer, such inaction is clearly immoral. If a child is drowning in a shallow pond and someone can save it but chooses not to; nor does placing greater geographical distance between the person in need and the potential helper reduce the latter's moral obligations. “It makes no difference whether the person I can help is a neighbor's child ten yards away from me or a Bengali whose name I shall never know, ten thousand miles away. The moral point of view requires us to look beyond the interests of our own society. Previously, this may hardly have been feasible, but it is quite feasible now. From the moral point of view, the prevention of the starvation of millions of people outside our society must be considered at least as pressing as the upholding of property norms within our society.” Singers......

Arguments of Peter Singer

...Arguments of Peter Singer PHI200: Mind and Machine (ABT1315A) April 19, 2013 Singer’s goal in the article “Famine, Affluence and Morality” is to get people to think differently about famine relief, charity, and morality. These are key issues that people need to be more aware of and act on them. People who are financially stable and well off should take more of an active role by giving more. They should feel obligated in helping those in need. There are many people suffering severely, those who can help are doing nothing. People should be more willing to give help rather than being obtuse & self-centered. Singer argues it is wrong for a person to suffer from homelessness, hunger, or lack of medical attention. These needs are essential in life and without them can alimentally lead to one’s death. Another argument Singer gives is if a person is wealthy, they are more than capable to help others financially. They need to feel obligated to do so. Instead of a person spending money on extras and materialistic items for themselves, they should donate that money to the poor. The money should help with necessities for the poor and uplift them. On the same point he points out, one should not sacrifice if it would put them in harm’s way. Singer’s concept of marginal utility is that one should give as much as possible to the unfortunate; it should never create a hardship to the giver. This would be doing more harm than good. When a person contributes to the......

Singer Paper

...In his essay “All Animals are Equal,” Peter Singer argues that there is no moral justification behind our refusal to extend some form of equality to animals. He states that because attitudes such as racism and sexism are fundamentally wrong, so too is the premise that one species is more deserving of ethical treatment based solely on the idea that one is more capable of thought or suffering than the other. The idea of treating animals as our equals is one that has been mocked in the past, but only because many have taken that idea to mean that animals are equal to humans in the most literal sense possible. As far as we can tell, most animals do not invent, think deeply, or create culture, and therefore are not equal solely in terms of rational behaviors. However, this is not the kind of equality Singer advocates for in his essay. First, he argues, we should not be equating moral equality with that particular kind of factual equality. If we were to base moral equality on factual equality, then we would be justified in discriminating against fellow humans based on ideas of inequality in regards to sex, race, or intelligence. The only way to fight this type of discrimination would be to prove that the feature or capacity we have chosen as a marker for factual equality is arbitrary, and can provide qualifiers from some other feature or capacity instead. The African-American and women’s liberation movements took this approach. They argued that skin color and sex were only......

Singer Group

...1 Introduction Singer (Sri Lanka) PLC is a conglomerate engaged in trading of consumer durables. It dates back its origins to 1877 where it started its first shop in Pettah. The Company was focused on selling sewing machines and as a step towards backward integration in 1963 Singer Industries (Ceylon) PLC was incorporated to assemble sewing machines. However the market for Sewing machines declined over the past years and the Company facing a financial downturn, took a critical decision to diversify into trading of consumer durables under its brand name Singer and as well as other brands which included Philips, TCL . This move enabled the Company to thrive in an era where its parent Company the Singer Corporation and subsidiaries across 100 countries collapsed due to its inability to change. Further to support the diversification Singer strategically entered into the manufacture of consumer durables thus ensuring a stable supply of products at a lower cost. Regnis (Lanka) PLC was incorporated to manufacture refrigerators, Television assembly was commenced at Singer Industries (Ceylon) PLC and a new factory in Piliyandala was constructed to manufacture furniture. With the evolvement of easy payment schemes and Hire Purchase payment systems for consumer durables the Company further took a decision to form a finance company Singer Finance Lanka Ltd. Today Singer Sri Lanka is a conglomerate with revenue in excess of Rs 11 billion and a market capitalisation of Rs 4.6 bn. It......

An Evaluation of Singer

...Logic: Peter Singer An Evaluation of Singer Peter Singer questions our conception of equality as it relates to the human species and other animal species. He fundamentally argues that, “The principle of the equality of human beings is not a description of an alleged actual equality among humans: it is a prescription of how we should treat humans.” The statement, revealing Singer’s essential argument, also comprises two approaches we might take towards establishing equality among living things. Let’s trace Singer’s claims surrounding these two approaches and finally consider his fundamental, philosophical assumption. One approach to equality stems from philosophers, who determine a base-line set of attributes or functions that constitute human beings. Typical treatises attribute humans with rational, linguistic, or emotional capacities that differentiate them from “brutes.” However, Singer culls evidence from the medical field, not research but simple observations of medical disabilities, where a human with born defects actually functions at a lower level than certain animal species. For example, someone with severe cognitive paralysis may be less rational or “able” than a normal-functioning dolphin. Thus, Singer points out that if we wish to establish equality based upon attributes, we have a hard time excluding many species of non-humans. As a corollary, the standard of equality by a typical set of characteristics must be set lower and lower to encompass all humans......

...Filosofía Mirada crítica a la visión de la dignidad humana de Singer En este curso se ha discutido, principalmente, sobre la dignidad de los seres vivos, de la cual se desprende el derecho o no a la vida de estos mismos, específicamente de los seres humanos. Ante la posición de Singer, la cual defiende la idea de que no todos los seres humanos tienen derecho a la vida, ya que no todos éstos son considerados personas, y solo aquellos que ejercen la facultad de conciencia y pueden defender sus intereses, lo son y por ende tienen derecho a la vida, no así, aquellos que queden fuera de esta descripción. Mi postura es de discrepar con esto y pienso que todos los seres tienen derecho a la vida. Como primer argumento debo decir que no me parece sensato, sino más bien arbitrario reducir el valor o la dignidad de un ser a su capacidad de conciencia, y menos sensato aún, a partir de esto, deducir que un ser de ésta naturaleza no tenga derecho a la vida. Una cosa es definir lo que es una persona, otra es derivar necesariamente que los que no entran en esta definición no tienen derecho a vivir ya que esto último no es lógico. Por lo demás, ser persona (entendida como ser racional, consciente, como lo entiende Singer) está presente potencialmente también en un embrión o niño pequeño, si bien aun no ejerce ciertas facultades, las ejercerá en un futuro y será igual de capacitado o quizás más aun que cualquier otra persona existente. También así, estas facultades están presentes en......

Dreams of Being a Singer

...As a child I always dreamed of becoming a famous singer. I would sing about everything. I would sing in church on Sundays and randomly at home for my family. I had a deep passion for singing, and honestly I could not see myself doing much else with my life. However life does not go the way you plan it all the time. When I first realized I could sing I was about seven years old. I was at my grandparent’s house with my uncle. We were listening to the radio when Mary J. Blidges’ song “I’m going down” came on. I could tell my uncle liked the song because he jumped up in excitement. He grabbed my hand and led me to the radio and told me to repeat the song after him. I was kind of hesitant at first because I was shy. I eventually found his lead. We sang for a while that day. From that day forward I knew I wanted to be a singer. I liked the way singing made me feel, so I continued to sing all the time. I would sing at weddings, birthday parties, and anniversary. Any kind of event you can think of I have probably sung at it. I loved singing so much I would literally sing myself. I participated in in the local community talent shows every year. I won two shows, once when I was nine years old and another when I was eleven years old. My family was so proud of me, and I was proud of myself. I gained a lot of my inspiration and style of singing from many different singers. I idolized singers like Stevie Wonder and Anita Baker. Their music was so soulful and it told stories. I also...

...Bangladesh’s textile industry. Free trade is an attempt to improve the international economy on the principle of “comparative advantage”. Bangladesh prospered by using their abundance of textile to trade for products that other countries have abundance. The main purpose of the “free trade” was to improve the global economy using the principle of “comparative advantage”. The shift to a free trade regime in the textile industry was good for Bangladesh’s employment and economic growth. Initially, textile products were exported through a preferential quota system from poor markets to rich markets but the shift accounted for lower labor cost, support from other industries, and increased business with western importers. Labor costs decreased to a level lower than China. Lower labor cost was due to low hourly wages and the use of technology. The use of technology increased productivity which allowed consumers to buy more for less money. Importers brought more textiles for less money during the recession. Free trade provided opportunities to build a strong sustainable growth of industries through garment manufacturers; increased opportunities to diversify supply sources, and provided a network for supporting industries. The benefactors of United States trading textiles from low-wage countries include the U.S. retailers and participating countries like Bangladesh. Chmielewski and Media (2016) stated “Free Trade is the best thing that could happen to a global economy and the worst......

Bangladesh

...Export Control in Bangladesh 1. Introduction: Bangladesh emerged as an independent country in 1971. She entered into International Trade actively since 1972. In the early years of independence the gap between Import and Export was very wide. This gap started to decrease from 1980s when Bangladesh adopted liberal trade policy consistent with the emerging trend of the market economy. Extensive reform programs have been implemented in trade regimes during the last two decades. The prime objective of the trade policy of Bangladesh is to strengthen the economy. For achieving this objective Bangladesh has adopted export-based development strategy. As export sector is the main sources of hard-earned foreign currency of Bangladesh, Government has taken all the initiatives for overall development of the sector. 2. Export Policy: For export promotion and development Bangladesh has been pursuing periodic Export Policy from 1980. In the first half of 80s she pursued one- year export policies in the first half of 80s and two-year policies in the last half of the same decades. Since then five- year export policies were formulated and implemented. After the expiry of the tenure of five-year policy government announced three –year Export Policy. On going Export Policy is for the period 2003-2009. These policies are consistent with the agreement under Uruguay Round Accord, WTO and the principles of market economy. These are also maintaining favorable balance between exports and imports of......
