Bangladesh Nazarene Mission
Bangladesh Nazarene Mission began its operation in Bangladesh in August 1994 with Community Based Health Care project involving immunization of children and child and mother health and hygiene programs. This project remained the focus for the first seven years expanding to 55 villages covering over 55,000 people in three Upazillas of Dinajpur district and one Upazilla in Gopalgonj district. To address the needs of severe flooding in Satkhira district in 2000 a significant relief and subsequent rehabilitation project was initiated leading to child and mother focused community development. In 2002 a nutritional rehabilitation program was started in 17 primary schools for about 1430 children. Also, in 2002, Nazarene Compassionate Ministry (NCM) began the Leadership Development Program targeted towards developing qualified professionals with integrity, commitment, and Professionalism.

In this year, a comprehensive nutritional rehabilitation program was initiated in 44 additional primary schools in four districts.
