Bangladesh. The forgotten.
Bangladesh. Our priorities.
Lobbying banks to provide loans
We help convince banks of people’s credit worthiness, to generate loans and credit to start, grow and sustain a business of their own.
Jobs and skills training
We provide skills training in carpentry, tailoring and bicycle and wheelchair repairs, and support people to get jobs in garment factories so that they can earn a living.
Accessible water and sanitation
The health and dignity of disabled people are at stake when sanitation and water facilities are not suitable. We fund and promote accessible water and sanitation facilities.
Bangladesh. The facts.
We cover 1/3 of the country
We work with local partners in more than 25 of the 64 districts of Bangladesh and covering nearly one third of the country. See the full list of projects and partners on our Annual Reports and Accounts.
15 million disabled people
Employment is key for the empowerment and inclusion of the more than 15 million disabled people living in Bangladesh.
£3 per month can change a life
The reality is that the majority of disabled adults are still unemployed. £3 per month could finance the startup of a business for someone in Bangladesh.
