DNB in brief
Bangladesh gained independence in 1971 through a bloodstained war that cost millions of lives. She had to pay a formidable price for attaining liberation from the centuries of colonial occupation. Mindless atrocities during the liberation war by the occupied forces ravaged the country into ruin. Consequently, in the very first decade after independence Bangladesh had to confront many difficulties. In that gloomy time, scores of NGOs emerged with certain missions of poverty alleviation, social welfare, and overall development of the country and DNBwas one of them. DNB was established in 1997 by Md. Rashid Choudhury, a well-educated and visionary man and is committed to the country’s development, especially welfare for the poor. Since its inception, DNB undertook and implemented various programs meant for improving the living standard of the poor and transforming society into prosperous.
