We envision a Bangladesh where there are zero deaths and disabilities in children due to preventable diseases. To achieve this, we must build a generation of young individuals who aspire to be scientists and leaders in their local communities to bring positive changes. With the aspirations of working in Bangladesh, with Bangladesh and for Bangladesh, earlier in 2022, we launched our program, “Building Scientists for Bangladesh.”
Most high school students, especially girls, in Bangladesh have never met a scientist or been introduced to the inventive and collaborative nature of scientific research. At CHRF, we wish want to change this. Through the three streams of our program, we take science to people by arranging science camps and/or opportunities for conversations with scientists, bring people to science and research labs, as well as provide hands-on laboratory and analysis skills to aspiring scientists.
