Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

BASMAH believes in change. The right kind of change happens when people are empowered. BASMAH's aim is to ensure long-term stability while providing short-term help where necessary. Its development interventions target long- term growth and to bring about a meaningful change in the lives of people who are disadvantaged and in distress. With this end in view BASMAH extended its development cooperation to complement the efforts of Bangladesh which is the host country of the Rohingya refugees. Bangladesh itself is faced with multi-faceted problems. BASMAH runs programs on education, health service, disaster and humanitarian assistance and skill development for the disadvantaged people.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

It is aiming to empower as many individuals as possible by brightening their lives through creating better opportunities, each of these empowered individuals can then improve their own lives and their communities.

The main strategy of BASMAH is that its programs are designed in consultation with the target beneficiaries so that the problems, issues and aspiration of the communities are embedded into the program so that there is ownership of the program by the community itself and the program follows the pragmatic ways to address the issues. BASMAH also works in collaboration with government agencies and stakeholders for greater synergy and to avoid duplication.

Clear focus, dedicated team

BASMAH has been able to effective provide the much-needed relief and assistance to the stranded Rohingya refugees with food aid, medical care, child education, clean water, winter clothing, skill training for the last three years. This continuous has made a huge difference in the services provided to the Rohingya refugees who otherwise would not have received such services easily. As BASMAH evolves and moves forward, it recognizes the importance of a larger alliance for greater synergy, strength, support and effectiveness in better serving humanity. As a growing organization BASMAH has many things to learn from and share its experiences with other organizations working in different time, place, and context. BASMAH from this year has already commenced emergency response programs within USA namely in Michigan and New York in relation to Covid-19 and has active plans to gradually move into other countries.
