Prottyashi as a non-governmental organization started its journey in 1983 and since then it has completed a journey of 37 years with an experience of working in various sectors. Prottyashi’s journey started with a small scale family Planning Program in 1983 and today it has expanded by showing strong presents with 106 branch offices in different upazilas of Chittagong, Cox’s Bazar, Noakhali, Chandpur, Brahmanbaria, Lakshmipur and Feni Districts. The journey that started with family planning program today stands with projects targeted to extreme poverty reduction, child rights, primary health care, water and sanitation, education, climate change, sustainable agriculture and food security. We are blessed to have partners like US-AID, PKSF, World Bank, Japan Government, ACTION AID, Water Aid, IOM, WorldFish and Govt. of Bangladesh beside us. Throughout this period, we have concentrated on working for short term and long term purposes.
Our targeted beneficiaries are people living in remote areas of Chittagong, Cox’s Bazar, Noakhali, Chandpur, Brahmanbaria, Lakshmipur and Feni who are deprived of minimum income to live, access to clean water, sanitation and also vulnerable to natural disaster like flood and cyclones. Our one of the remarkable aim is to promote Primary education and reduce dropout of students of the remote areas of Bangladesh. In this regard, Prottyashi is running 112 after schooling centers in Moheshkhali, Boalkhali and Patiya upazila. The organization is very keen to ensure modern health facilities to the underprivileged Rural people. Currently 42 health volunteers , 07 paramedics and 02 MBBS doctors are trying to reach to the poor families of the rural Bangladesh through various health facilities. Prottyashi strongly believes that rural economy will not promote without financial inclusion of all rural people specially women. In the recent past years Prottyashi is trying to create more entrepreneurs through it’s micro-credit and business development unit.
