We want to express our heartfelt thanks and deepest gratitude to all those whom came to our rescue after we lost our Training Centre in the devastating fire in Korail Slum March 2018.
Friends, family, some of you whom I had briefly met or never even met before; you showed me the best of human kind by donating money, time, materials, and helping out with construction work in the sweltering heat and rain showers.

Bangladesh is a small country, wedged between the Bay of Bengals, India and Burma. It is a young country in terms of its existence. In a distant past it was known as a district of India, called Bengal. From 1947 it was called East Pakistan, a district of Pakistan. Only in 1971 did it become independent following a bloody war of independence. Bangladesh, the land of the Bengali, was to become its new name.
