Bangladesh is a densely populated country with over half of the population living below the poverty line. The country is plagued with frequent natural disasters including floods and cyclones. The political unrest and religious tension in Bangladesh add to the complexity and struggle within this context. Struggles within communities are only exasperated by the lack of literacy in rural parts of the country where people have little to no understanding of their rights.
We have been working alongside our ministry partner, the Bangladesh Baptist Church Fellowship (BBCF), throughout the nation since 2004. BBCF is a denomination of churches that is passionately committed to planting churches that serve the country’s tribal groups as well as Hindu and Muslim communities through vigorous discipleship training and holistic community services.
