ActionAid Bangladesh (AAB) has been striving to create conditions in Bangladesh where the poor segment of the population can live a life free from poverty and injustice. Contributing to this vision, the organization joined hands with DIPECHO―a disaster preparedness programme financed by European Commission’s Humanitarian Aid & Civil Protection department—in the year 2004. Since then the fellowship has seen no stopping.
Where there is a Will! There is a Way!! is a brief snapshot of the changes that the DIPECHO team has struggled to materialize in the Disaster Risk Reduction scenario of Bangladesh. The case studies depict the success of the DIPECHO programme which came at the cost of stressful days and sleepless nights of AAB staffs.
