To reduce poverty of hardcore poor rural Minority Christians in Bangladesh

Requested by

Social Welfare, Empowerment and Economic Targets ( SWEET )

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

We work for poor minority Christian children in Bangladesh for education and nutrition. Christians make up 0.3% of the population in Bangladesh and face severe discrimination and persecution. So, most rural and some urban Christians are extremely poor and deprived. Often we are persecuted by majority Muslims. The affect goes on the children who mainly suffer from severe malnutrition and lack of education.

We provide support through training, financial support as well as food, clothing, educational equipment etc.
We mainly work in the southern, northern and western part of Bangladesh where most Christians live. Districts are Barisal, Patuakhali, Madaripur, Gopalgonj,Faridpur, Dhaka, khulna, Chittagong, Dinajpur, Mymensing, Sylhet.

The Founder, Mr Paul Provakar Saha is a very successful consultant to more than 300 non-government voluntary organization in Bangladesh for more than 20 years. If you need any service from him, he will be glad to offer you help.

What is your project and how will it help?

This program will cover the Barisal, Madaripur and Gopalgonj districts where many poor Christians live. We will select people according their poverty, mostly hardcore poor people will be listed out and we will contact local Churches to deliver us list and finally we will select 50 hardcore needy poor families.

We require US$200 for each family, we will provide support for their children education , one time income generation support services to them to such as provide them young goats or chicks of hen & ducks, hybrid seeds & fertilizer for homestead gardening, fish fries to families who have their own ponds or tanks. In this way they will be inspired for alternative income generation support and can multiply their efforts for sustainable income.

How can other people partner with you on your project?

We will work with NGOs and local Christian Church leaders to directly working with us to implement this project effectively. We believe we can reduce or alleviate poverty of rural hardcore poor minority Christian families in Bangladesh.

Please detail the resources that you need.

We need fund with all overhead cost US $ 10,000 to help 50 hardcore families to come out of poverty within one year or more (for each family we need $ 200 per year with 10% overhead cost)
