To raise funds and awareness that allows the extreme poor in rural areas of Bangladesh to lift themselves out of poverty using a proven and effective holistic model of poverty eradication
PSDI supports the implementation of a holistic Model through our sister organization in Bangladesh, Poverty Eradication Program (PEP). We are focused on serving the poorest people in rural areas of Bangladesh. We begin by identifying families near starvation and connect them with a social worker that nurtures them through a process beginning with meeting their basic needs then developing, with the family, a plan that offers economic opportunities to begin their journey toward self-sufficiency. Families lift themselves out of poverty through hard work and learning new behaviors and skills, including saving money and developing assets - usually within six years.
