Think tank

ActionAid International Bangladesh always had a distinctive approach be it from the early days of simplicity to today's complex nature of issues. ActionAid International Bangladesh starting its journey from a very small with a minimalist approach today has become a relatively important player of the vibrant NGO movement that seeks to fight poverty in the country. ActionAid came to Bangladesh in 1983 to support an orphanage in Bhola named 'For Those Who Have Less' (locally known as 'Bittohin'). Today AAIB is committed to changing the capacities of people and groups whose rights have been denied and violated in attaining justice and a life of dignity. They constantly strive to accelerate support for antipoverty initiatives and improve sustainability of development interventions that are inclined towards creating a confident and responsible nation, free from poverty and indignity. It´s vision is to have a world without poverty and injustice in which every person enjoys their right to a life with dignity and mission is to work with poor and excluded people to eradicate poverty and injustice. They see climate change as a form of injustice to the people living in poverty and work from grassroots to global level to ensure equity, and fairness in every step of delivering climate justice.
