The “Golden Bengal” is so fertile thanks to silt from the Himalayas, but when fishing produce and equipment fluctuates with the increasingly unpredictable tide, making a stable income here is heroic work. @friendshipngo is offering loans to fishermen to replace boats and nets, and providing training for shrimp farming, so financial empowerment continues despite rising tides.

Shakib’s visit to the char opened his eyes about how these river islands are completely disconnected from the world we know. Seeing Friendship’s attempt to sustainably improve lives of these marginalised communities, he said, “The more we can work together, the more we increase our capacity to help people.”

Every now and often we face natural disasters and we build shelters and try to help out the affected, we often forget that with the structures of these areas, immediate outside response becomes impossible. For these disaster-prone people, Friendship trains the community members to ensure they can help each other during these crises.

This year Cyclone Amphan displaced 2.1million Bangladeshis, but our cyclone shelter helped keep communities safe. This one was built by #KashefChowdhury in Kalapara, Patuakhali.

For the river island communities, education and healthcare is a far-fetched dream due to the nature of the lands. Friendship schools are built in a way that can serve these communities in regards to natural phenomena. And, out of the students who attend our primary schools, 97% of them achieve A- or above, far above the national average.

Whilst cricketing star Shakib Al Hasan could impart his wisdom on the pitch, he received an all-round education about our 60 schools housed in pre-fabricated buildings which are easily dismantled and relocated in the event of a natural disaster.
