Basic Informations

Friendship is a non-governmental organisation nurturing opportunity, dignity and hope in vulnerable communities in Bangladesh. Founded by Runa Khan in 2002, Friendship began with the innovative concept of a floating hospital and progressively built its distinctive integrated community development model, which includes health, education, climate Action, sustainable economic development, inclusive citizenship, and cultural preservation giving access to 4.2 million people.



We are an international social purpose organization guided by our vision of a world where people - especially the hard-to-reach and unaddressed - have equal opportunities to live with dignity and hope.



From Bangladesh, a country facing the most pressing of humanity’s challenges, we develop scalable solutions to strengthen marginalised communities, and empower people to transform their lives and reach their full potential.
