ADESH AT A GLANCE

Establishment:

ADESH is established by few enthusiastic young people on 16th December 1988, the Victory Day of Bangladesh after a short informal meeting. The initiators attended in an informal meeting on the day at martyred intellectual mausoleum at Mirpur and discussed mainly on the socio-economic situation of the country. After a thorough discussion later a conclusion was through that a lot of works to be done to change the prevailing dead lock in the society and a massive upraise among people was necessary to share the fruit of development. From next March 1989, the founder members (Mr. Subrato Dey, Dr. Benoy Goswami & Mr. Yeakub Nabi) started small programs by their own initiatives. Later ADESH is registered with the Department of Social Services in 1991, with NGO Affairs Bureau in 1992 and renewed up to 2017 & Microcredit Regulatory Authority November 29, 2007.
