Friendship Belgium aims to mobilize financial, human, and other resources to support and promote Friendship’s work for the poorest and most vulnerable people in Bangladesh.
Friendship Belgium ASBL/VZW was founded in 2018 to support development and humanitarian aid programmes in Bangladesh. This support involves the mobilization in Belgium of financial and non-financial resources, at the private, corporate or institutional level, in favour of Friendship Bangladesh. After Luxembourg, the Netherlands, France and the United Kingdom, Friendship Belgium is the fifth European entity to join Friendship International, an international platform that allows Friendship Bangladesh to get closer to potential donors and offers a structure of support in terms of fundraising, human resources, exchange of know-how, best practice and technical assistance. Together we work to create lasting solutions to the challenges faced by Bangladesh, especially those related to extreme poverty and climate change.
Some of our projects in Bangladesh
Educating the Unreachable
In the hard-to-reach river islands in northern Bangladesh, lack of access, roads and electricity create a situation in which educational institutions are extremely difficult to run. Schools are difficult to set up and it is hardly possible to find and maintain teachers in these areas. The challenge is therefore to bypass the geographical isolation and lack of qualified teachers by using Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and out-of-the-box thinking that yield real results.
