Our mission is to work for the welfare, support and rehabilitation of indigent, stateless and displaced people. The primary focus is to alleviate the suffering of thousands of stateless people stranded in refugee camps in Bangladesh. Our goal is to provide them with better living conditions, education and economic empowerment.
OBAT has completed nine years of struggles and successes. In this time, we have accomplished several projects, of which I am proud to share with you the high self-empowerment rate achieved in our education and micro-financing projects. Up to this date, we have been able to provide basic education to thousands of kids and also help hundreds of youth for college and professional education.
I travel every year to Bangladesh to visit our forgotten brothers and sisters. My recent visit marked a milestone for the journey of their progress. At the Rangpur tutoring center, I asked the students about their future plans and almost 60% of them expressed interest in becoming a doctor, lawyer or another professional.
