About Bangladesh

Once part of India, then becoming East Pakistan, Bangladesh achieved its independence in 1971. Since then, urban and rural poverty has prevented this crowded and colourful country from reaching its full potential.

In fact, Bangladesh is currently listed by the United Nations as one of the poorest and least developed countries in the world. Bangladesh is well-known for natural disasters. With a total of 230 rivers flowing through the country, cyclones, tornadoes and flooding occur almost every year. But lack of community resources means that the effects of these disasters are felt most by people already struggling to survive. The economy is based mainly on agriculture and manufacturing, with limited export. Its population density is a staggering 834 people per square kilometre, and 77 percent of these people live in poverty.

The literacy level stands at only 66 percent, substantially lower for girls and women. Gender inequality in itself creates problems, because women are less likely to have knowledge of health and nutrition, or to have a say in family, community or government decisions. Lack of knowledge also makes HIV and AIDS a real threat in Bangladesh. Neighbouring India has the second-largest number of people living with HIV/AIDS worldwide, and it has quickly spread from high-risk groups into the general community. According to 2011 UNAIDS reports, there are 25,000 HIV positive people in Bangladesh.

Children in Bangladesh live alongside some major challenges. Malnutrition in children is rife, claiming lives or leading to lasting health problems. Many waterways are polluted with arsenic, but are often the only source of water for families. Lack of opportunity and family poverty places additional pressure on children to leave home or work instead of attending school. The number of children living on the street, at risk of exploitation and abuse, is on the rise. Native Evangelical Christian Trust response to poverty in Bangladesh and making the community peace through the holistic services.

His Background

He and his wife saw a vision for Bangladesh in 2004 that many people are going to the darkness because of poverty of Bangladesh. The gospel will never work in their lives until we recover the needs of their physical. On other hand, the existence of churches and organizations in our country has not capability to help the community well and self sustaining yet and the new believers also suffering for their faith security. Many orphanages are crying for the foods. One day, Rev. Ishan received a voice from God that you can witness and love and care and help people through the word of God so that many children's and families will see the light in this nation and serve the community. So we husband and wives left the campus crusade and start this ministry for doing the social and spiritual activities in Bangladesh. We will be happy if you join with us and change the community by serving the needy and poorest in Bangladesh.
