Lockdown has been going on in Bangladesh for more than one month due to the second wave of Covid-19, as a result that people are losing their job. People of the coastal region are the worst victim of losing work sources due to the pandemic.

Bangladesh Environment and Development Society (BEDS) has supported 20 Sheep, 100 chicken and 100 ducks to the Sundarbans coastal people (Banishanta union of Dacope sub district of Khulna district). The supported people are now very happy with those livestock. They expect that these livestock will bring them luck. It turns out to be a great means of alternative livelihood for them. BEDS supported a small number of people, but there are many more marginal villagers live in the Sundarbans coastal region of Bangladesh who need the same support. Majority of the Sundarbans coastal people are forest dwellers (fishermen, honey collectors and nipa collectors) and they have no other alternative income generating sources. But currently, Government of Bangladesh has issued some strict rules and laws on forest resource harvesting. So, the forest the dwellers fall in huge jeopardy. As they belong to a very poor socio economic condition. They can’t help going inside the forest for their living. Children of the families of forest dwellers generally don’t get the opportunity of higher education due to poverty and their parents’ unconsciousness. BEDS is currently trying to raise fund from GlobalGiving platform in order to help those marginal people.

We would like to thank all our donors for being so kind to us so far. We are requesting all our kind donors to start monthly recurring donation. For recurring donation, please visit the following link;

Bangladesh Environment and Development Society (BEDS) has supported 20 Sheep, 100 chicken and 100 ducks to the Sundarbans coastal people (Banishanta union of Dacope sub district of Khulna district). The supported villagers are nourishing those livestock with real care. So, the number is increasing day by day. The supported villagers are earning from eggs and meat selling 

Impact:

BEDS has provided ram and some ducks to me. After that I am nourishing those rams and ducks. New ducklings have been born and sheep are giving birth to new lambs. Now I can earn from eggs and meat selling. Now I don’t have to look for work and go out for work. Now I can take care of my children as well as my family members. I am contributing to my family income and this brings solvency in my family income. My life has been changed

Feedbacks from the beneficiaries:

One of beneficiary expresses her felling. Before starting the alternative livelihood work, I struggled a lot to earn our livelihood. I used to work as a day laborer on other people’s land. At the end of the day I got some wages, which is very little. Sometimes I didn’t even get this work, sometimes I had to go out in search of work. It was too difficult to find work in Covid-19 situation. After getting the support of sheep and duck, my life has been changed. Now I am earning money at my home. I can take proper care of my children and can taking care of their children education in a better way than what they did in the past. I am contributing to my family expenses also.

But there are many more marginal villagers live in the Sundarbans coastal region of Bangladesh, who needs the same support. People who depend on the forest resources fall in huge risk as Bangladesh government has issued strict laws on forest resource harvesting.BEDS is currently trying to raise fund from GlobalGiving platform in order to help those marginal people.

Livestock rearing provides economic support
Livestock rearing provides economic support

Lockdown is still going on in Bangladesh due to Covid-19, as a result that low-income people are losing their job. People of the coastal region are the worst victim of losing works due to the pandemic.

BEDS supported 20 Sheep, 100 chicken and 100 ducks to improve their economic situation during Covid-19. The supported people are doing well; they are taking cake of the livestock. They are providing feed and regularly monitoring the livestock. They are getting eggs from chicken and ducks. Some of them sell eggs and getting monetary benefit. Others are rearing chickens and ducks and the number of livestock increasing day by day. They also sell the ducks and chickens for meat and getting economic support. They are taking care of the livestock like new born babies. A new scope for income has been developed and their family income has increased. But there are many more marginal villagers live in the Sundarbans coastal region of Bangladesh, who need the same support.People who depend on the forest resources fall in huge risk as Bangladesh government has issued strict laws on forest resource harvesting. Those people belong to an extremely poor socio economic condition. So, in pandemic situation, they require instant support. Livestock can be a great medium for them to survive. BEDS is currently trying to raise fund from GlobalGiving platform in order to help those marginal people.
