ABOUT ARBAN

ARBAN, meaning Activity for Reformation of Basic Needs, is working since 2002 in north-western part of greater Mymensingh region of Bangladesh. It has primarily concentrated on Netrokona district, a location surrounded by both hills & wetlands, furnished with scenic natural beauty and rich cultural heritage. The population of the area has got a unique mix of ethnic Garo hill community and the local poor mass of the plain land. Considering the context, ARBAN has aimed to develop the community with motivation and skill so that they can find the ways to come out of the vicious circle of poverty and ensure sustainable livelihood. To achieve its objective, ARBAN specially emphasized on developing the skill of the local youth for effective use and utilization of IT devices in their day-to-day efforts. In short, ARBAN is contributing in the process of building a knowledge-based future society at the grassroots of Bangladesh. Please find an overview of ARBAN interventions:
