Shawpnodana: A dream for a better environment

With an aim to conserve the environment, Shwapnodana began their journey in 2017. They initiated with a flood relief project and then expanded to facilitate education for slum-children in Dhaka by distributing books and other school supplies. Shwapnodana has also executed campaigns on dengue prevention, with an emphasis on the importance of proper sanitation and the need for environmental cleanliness.

During their cleanliness drive, they distributed leaflets across all households in the Dhamrai municipality and conducted a rally under the slogan ‘Nij Angina Porishkar Rakhi, Shobai Mile Shushtho Thaki’ (By keeping our surroundings clean, we all can stay healthy). 

Their project, Shwapnodana Anando Bidyaloy, provides education to underprivileged children thrice a week. “This campaign was inspired by the need to eradicate illiteracy for building a brighter future,” shared Shariar Fardous Rana, the founder and president of Shwapnodana.

Their annual projects include the distribution clothing drives during winter and tree-plantation drives for students during monsoon. Moving forward, they intend to distribute dustbins across Dhamrai, Savar and Manikganj over a period of six months. The team plans to begin this project from February 2020 by distributing 50 dustbins, free of cost.

Currently, 40 people are a part of the Shwapnodana family and all their projects are self-financed. So far, they have helped around 1,000 people with their work. “We seek the cooperation of people from all walks of life in order to successfully complete our projects and are determined to keep working for a better tomorrow,” shared Shariar.
