Founder Message

Only few NGO activities were visible within the working areas of the organization during disasters. We had to start development activities for the poor community people in very adverse situation. Community people, leaders and fundamentalists were against the activities and we had to proceed carefully. 

Char dwellers are poor and vulnerable and leading sub-human lives fighting continuously against hunger, poverty and disasters. Women were confined to houses and not allowed to talk to outsiders and to take active part in development works with males. Even income generation activities of females are not appreciated by husband and outsiders of the community. Education ratios for females were very poor especially female education.
We believe in working Our Organization  according to the core Humanitarian Principal.
(Principled Humanitarian Action:
People are at the heart of humanitarian action. The primary motivation of any response to crisis is to save lives, alleviate human suffering and to support the right to life with dignity.
Humanitarian action is guided by four widely accepted principles4:

Independence: Humanitarian action must be autonomous from the political, economic, military or other objectives that any actor may hold with regard to areas where humanitarian action is being implemented.4. Neutrality: Humanitarian actors must not take sides in hostilities or engage in controversies of a political, racial, religious or ideological nature.
