Photobook: Char Islanders Powering through Poverty in Bangladesh

03 January 2017

This photobook "Char Islanders Powering through Poverty in Bangladesh" vividly showcases the impact of Concern Worldwide's Char Integrated Programme (CIP) between 2012 and 2016.

Concern's Char Integrated Programme (CIP) aimed to help the poorest and the most marginalised families in remote riverine islands – called Chars – in Bengali, to move out of extreme poverty. Importantly, our team worked with communities to help ensure that they could sustain themselves long after the programme ends. CIP has helped to move 89.3% of 15,000 households out of poverty. This photobook offers a vivid snapshot of the people who have worked with our teams to move themselves and their families out of extreme poverty.
