The association "BESCO-Hilfe für Bangladesch e.V." (BESCO – Help for Bangladesh, a registered association) was founded in 2006 by Dr. Hamidul Haque. It is a non-profit charitable voluntary relief organization for educational and socio-cultural development in Bangladesh. BESCO is an acronym for Bangladesh Educational & Socio-Cultural Organization.
Bangladesh is one of the poorest countries of the world. More than half of the population are illiterate, for the women it is even 73%. Altogether, there is a lack of teachers, schools and school material. Secondary schools are rare in rural regions. Many children cannot even finish primary school and have to start working to support their parents financially. A very little financial help (e.g. 3 EURO per month) can support the school education of a pupil. A basic medical care practically doesn't exist in rural areas. This is problematic particularly for women since many are suppressed and maltreated.
The association supports, motivates and helps people belonging to all classes of the society primarily, however, the poorest in the sectors of the school education, the social help, the cultural help, the humanitarian help and the medical help. This help would enable the poor people to help themselves (a sustainable self-help) and to lead a life worthy of a human being.
