Facts of Bangladesh

Bangladesh is a small, impoverished South-East Asian nation of 160 million. Thousands of remote villages of Bangladesh are plagued with poverty, malnutrition and illiteracy. The population in Bangladesh is predominantly rural, with almost 80 percent of the population living in rural areas. Many people live in remote areas that lack services such as education. health clinics, and adequate roads, particularly road links to markets. About one-third population in rural areas lives below the poverty line. They suffer from persistent food malnutrition, own no land and assets, are often uneducated and may also suffer serious illnesses or disabilities. Another group of the rural population is considered moderately poor. Though they may own a small plot of land and some livestock and generally have enough to eat, their diets lack nutritional value. As a result of health problems or natural disasters, they are at risk of sliding deeper into poverty. Women are among the poorest of the rural poor, especially when they are the sole heads of their households. They suffer from discrimination and have few earning opportunities, and their nutritional intake is often inadequate.
