Youth Exchange Program

The definition of the concept of “youth” depends on the different cultural and social contexts involved. The HOPE’87 beneficiaries – young people – are often project partners belonging to an integrated system of social ties with responsibilities, duties, and rights.

Poverty Alleviation

Bangladesh is one of the most densely populated countries in the world. Rural people of many parts of the country suffer persistent food insecurity for several reasons. HOPE’87 assists the communities especially youths to alleviate poverty and improve their living status.

Health Care

In Bangladesh the government health care system is inadequate to serve a large population. There is high incidence of morbidity and mortality in slum areas HOPE’87 provides health care to the people through static health centres, mobile health camps, etc.
