Smiles From Bangladesh

The Chandpur Total Community Development Centres (TCDC) project works in 12 villages around the town of Chandpur in Bangladesh.

This video, made by Baptist Aid in Bangladesh, introduces the project and talks about what it is doing in the project villages.

TCDC is the development vision of Baptist Aid-BBCF, the aid and development arm of the Bangladesh Baptist Church Fellowship. Their vision is for ‘a Bangladeshi society based on moral and ethical values, free from poverty, injustice and oppression with equal opportunity and sustainable livelihoods for all people’ - ‘giving life in all its fullness’. They estimate that each TCDC couple directly and positively impacts 200 local poor people, with indirect impact through friends, relatives and community relations estimated at 500 to 1000 people.

The project is supported by BANZAid with funding from the Sustainable Development Fund of the New Zealand Aid Programme.
