The Bangladesh Health Project is a not-for-profit organization with no government funding. It is sustained through private contributions, such as monetary donations, volunteer effort and education supplies, with very low overhead.
All cash donations are entirely used directly toward the project and its beneficiaries.
Your contribution towards population health in Bangladesh is greatly appreciated. Please contact us directly about larger donations or with any questions.
How you can help
We welcome enthusiastic short-term and long-term volunteers to contribute from home or as visiting faculty in Bangladesh. We value contributions of educational materials, which visiting faculty volunteers will take with them. We also appreciate donations to support project activities such as salaries for teachers at Bluebell School, the purchase of books and teaching equipment and developing teaching space. Scholarship and bursary support for secondary school, nursing, MPH and OIST students is also welcome. Canadian charitable donation tax receipts will be provided for eligible financial donations.
How donations are used
The Bangladesh Health Project receives no government funding. So far, we operate on donations of about $25,000 per year, mostly from a few families.
Your donations to the Bangladesh Health Project are used only to support BHP activities in Bangladesh. Our overhead costs in Canada are website, book-keeping and audit services to meet Canada Revenue Agency requirements. None of the directors is paid.
As private, not-for-profit institutes, IUBAT College of Nursing and OIST charge tuition. Both have a policy to support bright students who cannot afford tuition fees through loans, grants and scholarships. Bluebell School charges no tuition.
