Briddhi, a non-profit organization working for the welfare of children, was officially launched at the Pairaband Farmer Centre in Mithapukur upazila of Rangpur on September 28.

Briddhi, founded by Israt Sharmin Keya, aims to provide holistic, grassroots-based solutions that ensure best possible living standard of children, said a press release.

Working with local communities, Briddhi's initiatives include access to healthcare, nutrition, skills development and providing recreational spaces for children with special needs.

With its focus on reaching the most vulnerable and ignored communities, Briddhi began its journey by launching a nutrition campaign and a need-based survey of female farmers concentrating on the wellbeing of their children.

Later in the program, Briddhi launched its “Call to Action” initiative where children with serious problems were documented for social media activism.

“Despite the growth of the garments and IT industry, which are definitely commendable, agriculture remains the backbone of Bangladesh’s economy,” said Israt Sharmin Keya, President of Briddhi.

“It just felt right that we launch Briddhi to recognize our unsung heroes and care for their children,” she added after paying tribute to Begum Rokeya at her birthplace in Pairaband.

The program was attended by Farzeen Ferdous Alam, economist and vice president of Briddhi, Md Moniruzzaman, general manager of Joikko Agro Ltd and agriculture community partner of Briddhi and Aizar Islam, president of Pairaband agriculture committee.
