A congenial society for economic and socio-cultural development


Create opportunities and enable the society especially underprivileged/socially excluded community.


Throughout its life cycle (26 years), the organization has so far taken up 302 (including 262 completed and 40 ongoing) projects. During this time, the organization has extended its development support to the seven million development partners. Apart from this, currently it has been extending its support to a half million families. Regarding the contribution towards water resource management, the organization excavated and re-excavated more than one hundred canals and 150 ponds. It has also assisted in cancellation of lease deeds of 100 Khash ponds. To ensure good governance, Shushilan has organized/ formed six thousand people’s organizations which are consist of 125,000 community members who are capable of playing a positive role in social transformation. In other words, Shushilan has so far worked at 1039 Union Parishads (UPs), in 197 Upazilas (sub-districts) under 42 districts in all divisions of Bangladesh. The organization has been implementing five programs through its 2000 skilled and dedicated staff for the welfare of the poor and the vulnerable community.

The task is challenging but equally exciting. In fact, actualization of Shushilan’s vision depends on dedication and capacity of the staff members, cooperation from the Government and donors for serving to the most backward and vulnerable millions of people in this country. Once again, I express my heartfelt gratitude to the GoB, donors, development partners and beloved staff for their support, dedication and cooperation because without these it would have been impossible for Shushilan to reach such milestones.
