The Foundation for Charitable Activities in Bangladesh (FCAB) is a non-profit organization incorporated under the laws of the state of Michigan (Registration # 71279F), as a 501 (c) (3) taxexempt non-profit under the United States Internal Revenue Services (EIN # 46-2270213, DLN: 17053221316033) and as a Bangladesh INGO (Registration # 2970).
FCAB’s goal is to facilitate socio-economic development in Bangladesh by non-resident Bangladeshis and others interested in working with the country’s disadvantaged by focusing first on the entire needs of one village. It will enable financial contributions towards FCAB projects, facilitate the exchange of interns, professionals and volunteers between the United States and Bangladesh, encourage social entrepreneurs and build partnerships with relevant institutions.
As its capacity expands, donors may designate which geographic areas and on what projects they would like their donations to be directed. FCAB initiated its work in the village of Bagdumur in Sirajganj district, Bangladesh in 2015 with a project on healthcare, livelihood support and with plans to create Bangladesh’s first “Smart Village” to assess and address its energy, health, education, water/sanitation and agro/livelihood needs. It has received a Rotary International Global Grant for its Bagdumur maternal and child clinic.
