Volunteers Association for Bangladesh


Get Involved




VAB Directors decided to make generous contribution towards VAB’s funding solvency. The aim is to use Directors’ contribution to cover all or most of VAB’s overhead expenditure, both in the USA and in Bangladesh. The VAB Bylaws say, this is “so that VAB can appeal more energetically to individual donors that 100% of their donation will go for Programs”.

VAB Bylaws stipulate, Annual Contribution for each Director may be set at a minimum of $2,000, untied to any services or contribution for any VAB program activity. Contribution must be paid within the year, preferably in the early months.


VAB is always open for partnership with any organization concerning improvement of the quality and availability of education for the underprivileged rural students of Bangladesh. We already have partnership with Chevron Bangladesh, Rotary Club, Agami Foundation and Jaago Foundation for example.

Volunteer Opportunities


VAB relies heavily on volunteers to implement its educational programs Beginning in 2005 VAB has given the responsibility of school monitoring to about 30 local college and University students as Volunteer Interns. So far 68 of them have also been given various training and 35 have landed jobs.

VAB takes fresh university graduates as interns. This serves as a training ground for the potential future entrants in social sector through NGOs. VAB reaps benefit out of their ideas, vigor and desire to learn and puts them into substantive work in its program.

If you are willing to be an intern, please contact: vab.bgd@gmail.com



University students form a part of VAB workforce in the execution of its programs. The high school students can connect with these volunteers more closely. The volunteers become role models for the high school students and it incentivizes them to dream of their own future.
