During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
To develop programs that maximize the human potential and supporting resources to elevate individuals out of poverty and provide them financial and social freedom. To implement policies that provide educational training, awareness of the environmental concerns; encourage human capital development; provide basic health and housing needs; teach financial responsibility, social responsibility, family planning, and continued personal growth.
Tea for 2 is a nonprofit organization providing self-employment opportunities and clinical assistance to rural location in Bangladesh. Our program goal is to make vocational education available to rural populations, and then provide financing so that each person can develop a self-employment opportunity that creates sustainment for their families. A supplemental goal is to ensure the health of individuals in rural Bangladesh by providing clinical support for basic health needs. Our program is designed to provide an on-ramp for the poor and an off-ramp for those that are successfully self-employed and have completed their financing program. We want to stop the cycle of younger adults leaving the rural areas and going to densely populated cities, including overseas, to find work that is not sustainable for basic needs or basic human dignity. The departure of younger adults leaving the rural area without skills creates a cascading affect on family members, younger and older, both financially and socially.
Our team will identify opportunities where self-employment is a sustainable pathway to financial and social freedom. These opportunities will be developed into programs. Each program will consist of vocational education/training, financial literacy, financing, monitoring, and assessment for continuous program improvement.
