Amar Dawat (Food Hanger)
Amar Dawat (Food Hanger) is a social inclusion project by Amar Daraz, a social contiguity of Daraz Bangladesh Ltd, with OBHIZATRIK Foundation as the operating and managing partner. This project was mainly planned to make an effective contribution in alleviating hunger and misery of the underprivileged people of Bangladesh. It has been designed for anyone and everyone who calls for a snack at any given moment. The stores under the Amar Dawat project acts as platforms to bring together people of different economic background. Some are benefitted by accepting the snacks and some take part by donating for the smooth operation of this humane initiation. Currently, the project has been successfully implemented in 30 shops for several months.
Hunger is the most melancholic impediment of poverty in the world and Bangladesh is not exempted from it. Poverty alleviation is and was always the core challenge for Bangladesh. Approximately 25 percent of the population in Bangladesh go through starvation and 36 percent of children younger than five years of age suffer from stunting, a common measure of chronic malnutrition according to World Food Program. The government is constantly working with the goal of improved gender equitable food security, nutrition and resilience of vulnerable people within the country.
At a Glance
The aim of this initiative is to make sure no individual is left hungry within the underprivileged population, at the best of our capabilities. Tea stalls in various locations will be provided with snacks in order to help the deprived portion of our society. The appointed shop locations were in Mirpur, Mohakhali, Dhanmondi, Tejgaon, Mohammadpur, Niketon, Nikunjo, Banani, Shahjadpur, Asadgate, Kuril and Lalmatia. Some new shops have been appointed in Jafrabad, Khilgaon Taltola, Rampura, College Gate, Gulshan and Kathalbagan. The stores are monitored 3 days every week.
Hunger has been an everlasting crisis in Bangladesh. There are still a significant number of populations who are unable to afford the daily, bare minimum food intake for survival. Our main target group are these disadvantaged people who are living in constant stress of food insecurity.
This project is compatible enough to be a wonderful example of social inclusion and can be accomplished through feasible simplification and transparent management.
