Catalysing change in Bangladesh

21 July 2015

Read an overview of our diverse work in Bangladesh, which ranges from health and education to disaster risk reduction.

Concern Worldwide was formally established in Bangladesh in 1972. Our programmes in this country have evolved to tackle the multi-dimensional nature of poverty, focussing on inequalities, risks and vulnerabilities.

In addition to our emergency humanitarian response programmes, we work in four development contexts across Bangladesh: urban, coastal, Char regions and Haor regions. We have a wide range of programmes including educational access for street-dwellers, urban nutritional services, resilience-building against climate change and natural hazards, and support for phone-in medical centres in rural communities.

Also detailed is our advocacy work, an integral part of our programmes. We facilitate people’s mobilisation and help to build institutions that will empower the extreme poor, while aiming to influence national policies in favour of them.
