Qatar Charity (QC), with the support of the benefactors in Qatar, implemented 50 Income-Generating Projects in the Northern districts of Bangladesh to empower the poor and widow families economically.
As a part of its ‘Income Generating Project’ (IGP), QC provided farmlands, shops, and fisheries to the vulnerable families of three districts--Rangpur, Lalmonirhat, and Thakurgaon, said in a press release issued by its Dhaka office on Saturday.
Sadequl Islam, one of the beneficiaries of Rangpur district, said: ` I was unemployed for a long time after my graduation. I was trying for a suitable job but failed to get it. I didn’t have any piece of land so that I could produce crops to earn money. In this circumstance, I received a fisheries project from Qatar Charity. `
Pavel Miah, 20, an honors second-year student of Rangpur Government College, said: ‘I have received a shop from Qatar Charity which is fully equipped with necessary commodities. Besides studying, I ran the shop which made me self-dependent.’
In the last 3 years, Qatar Charity established 120 income-generating projects in many areas of Bangladesh aiming to provide livelihood opportunities for the beneficiary families to uplift their financial conditions with respect and dignity.
