PLAN IN BANGLADESH

Plan has been operating in Bangladesh since 1994, helping poor children to access their rights to health, education, economic security and protection. Children are the heart of everything we do.

In 2013, our work benefited a total of 11,701,086 children and a larger population of 23,064,574 people within programme unit (PU) and outside PU areas.

One of our current projects helps smallholding households mobilise their entrepreneurial skills and gain greater knowledge of good farming practices so that they can increase their incomes and establish sustainable livelihoods. Integrating agriculture and microfinance programmes, the Dairy Farm project will benefit around 500 families from 2 districts in its initial phase alone.
