Symbiosis International exists to alleviate the poverty in Bangladesh. Since it began in the early 1990s, it has worked toward the empowerment and development of community-based organisations. Its objectives are being achieved through Symbiosis Bangladesh. The pictures below show numerous activities that depict instances of life transforming, sustainable development.
The Symbiosis International approach is a holistic one. Progress is coming in small steps with projects and programs long-term. Field staff work with people in villages for whom impersonal institutions are foreign, intimidating and create dependency. The development of long-term committed relationships is essential and one of the core values of Symbiosis.
