Friendship UK raises funds and awareness in the UK in support of the services that Friendship provides in Bangladesh. Together we strive to help the ultra poor in underserved communities in the remotest areas of Bangladesh.
Founded in 2010, Friendship UK is a registered charity (Reg. N° 1153680) established principally to provide support to Friendship Bangladesh. Mobilizing both financial and non-financial resources, it forms part of Friendship’s international support structure, which, in addition to providing financial resources, also enables the exchange of know-how, best practice, technical assistance and human resources. Together we work to create lasting solutions to the challenges faced by the poor and marginalized communities in Bangladesh.
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.
