actionaidbdActionAid Bangladesh always had a distinctive approach be it from the early days of simplicity to today’s complex nature of issues. ActionAid Bangladesh starting its journey from a very small with a minimalist approach today has become a relatively important player of the vibrant NGO movement that seeks to fight poverty in the country.ActionAid came to Bangladesh in 1983 to support an orphanage in Bhola named ‘For Those Who Have Less’ (locally known as ‘Bittohin’). Today ActionAid is committed to changing the capacities of people and groups whose rights have been denied and violated in attaining justice and a life of dignity.

ActionAid Bangladesh also assists efforts and builds capacities of actors of civil society and partner communities’ whom we believe are engaged in safeguarding and promoting people’s rights.

We constantly strive to accelerate support for anti–poverty initiatives and improve sustainability of development interventions that are inclined towards creating a confident and responsible nation, free from poverty and indignity.
