Practical Action Bangladesh Annual Report 2014-15

An overview of Practical Action's work in Bangladesh, including results and impacts, during the financial year April 2014 – March 2015.

From the Country Director

Among development agencies working in Bangladesh and across the globe, Practical Action stands out in many ways. We are not just an agency that works for poverty elevation by any means. Our mandate is to establish wellbeing for the poor people through technology justice. When we say, Technology Justice, it refers a just society where technology works beneficial to all.

The term technology draws certain things in our mind like: high-end mobile phone, computer and other daily life electronic gadgets. However, when we talk about technology, it is hardly about posh and luxury gadgets, but more about something that brings wellbeing to the poor people’s lives and livelihoods. We talk about technologies that are in need, to come out of poverty. We work for technology justice with a vision to reduce the gap between technology want and technology need.

In our activities, technology lives as the lifeline to maximise the outcome and sustainability. None of our work is one shot game or trick for overcoming poverty. Whatever we do for the wellbeing of the poor people, we do it passionately. Our support never ends up with project completion. It goes on. Because we provide technology with knowledge that transforms poor people from hand-out receivers into hands-on activists.

In Bangladesh, we work in the most remote, backward and poverty & disaster stricken areas. Our significant activities in Bangladesh are on: Climate Smart Technologies, Modern Agriculture and its Market, Food Security and Safety, Water, Sanitation and Hygiene, Waste Management and turning into Energy and Knowledge & Information Management. In this report, we tried to give the readers a glimpse of our work along with result and impact from April 2014 to March 2015.

I would like to end my note by thanking all of our stakeholders: communities whom we work with, donors, partners, allies and staff of Practical Action in Bangladesh and other country offices.
