Habitat for Humanity International – Bangladesh has been busy with local advocacy in Dhaka, spreading the good news of Habitat’s work.
On Friday 21 November, staff from the PR/RD department spent the day talking about Habitat and selling merchandise at the annual fair of the International School Dhaka (ISD).
ISD has long been a supporter of Habitat and have provided many volunteer teams to build at Habitat’s sites around the country.
Despite being a long, hot day, the Habitat staff were more than happy to talk about the successes and growth of the organization. As Habitat move towards increased reliance on local fundraising and volunteers, local advocacy is an important avenue to encourage growth in programs in Bangladesh.
