Introduction:

BOHUBRIHY was established in 1993 at Bhushirbandar, Chirirbandar Upazilla under Dinajpur district beside Rangpur-Dinajpur high way. It is 56 km. from Rangpur division and 24 km. from Dinajpur district. It is a non-profitable and political free Non-Government local organization. Since 1993, the organization has been implementing various types of program/projects in deferent aspects in the Northern part of Bangladesh to increase awareness and capacity building of community people especially children, women, ageing people as well as strengthen of local government by the collaboration of donor agency and government officials.  

 

Background:

In 1993, it was identified that the socio-economic conditions of people of urban area of the northern region of Bangladesh like Dinajpur district were very deplorable. Acute poverty, diseases, malnutrition, illiteracy, unemployment, less accountability of the administration and irresponsibility of the local leaders were the common apprehension of life in the area due to lack of low literacy rate, consciousness and less adaptation of modern technology. Especially vulnerable group like children, women, older people and ethnic groups even general people were severely exploited, oppressed and deprived in the society.

 

The Government service providers, local government institution like Union parisad and other institutions are less responsible on their accountability and transparency. Both vulnerable and general people always seek cooperation and services to their wellbeing from the government service provider, local government and local leaders. They are reluctant and less transparent on their services for the general people. Their less accountability and transparency on their service may intimidation to the vulnerable groups such as older people, widow, disables are mostly deprived from these service sectors and lead their life in more awful.

 

The salient features of women suffering in the area were early marriage, dowry, divorce, domestic violence, and separation with children without maintenance also existed there. In addition, malnutrition & maternal mortality rate in the area were found higher.

 

The condition of children was also worse. They were the victims of unplanned parenthood and were born underweight due to poor health status of the mothers. Most of the children remained unschooled or little schooled due to financial insolvency of the parents and their apathy about education. 

Older people and ethnic groups were surviving in terrible condition; suffer from basic needs such as health care, well food and cloth. The ethnic children were deprived from light of education and nutritional food. They were surrounded by superstitions and outdated from modern technology.

Considering the gravity and magnitude of the problems, Md. Jakir Hossen with some local energetic interested young’s of Bushirbandar, Chirirbandar, Dinajpur area  who are dedicated for the  welfare of the poor people and with an aim to promote the socio-economic and cultural status of the rural vulnerable through concretization, capacity building, institution building, capital formation, and imparting felt-need based problem solving programs and the present BOHUBRIHY came into existent in January,1993. It is a Non Govt. voluntary humanitarian organization and fully free from any Political, religious or ethnic bias activities. BOHUBRIHY believes in non-directive, bottom up, participatory integrated development frameworks and acts as a catalyst with its beneficiaries.
