Friends of Khasdobir, Bangladesh

Delivering a better future

A road in Sylhet

Friends of Khasdobir is a UK based charity that has been working with people from the Khasdobir area of Sylhet city in Bangladesh for many years. Our aim is to improve the opportunities for some of the poorest people living in this part of Bangladesh, mainly people working on the nearby tea estates and living in the slums on the outskirts of the city. We do this by supporting educational provision for children and young people and providing small grants to elderly destitute widows. Today the work in Sylhet is managed by a Sylhet based organisation, the Sylhet Jubo Academy.
