Up Close and Personal with Dr. Badiul Majumdar of Bangladesh


June 2012 U.S. Tour

Why would someone leave a position as a business school professor in the U.S. and spend the next 18 years transforming rural life throughout his native Bangladesh?

Dr. Badiul Alam Majumdar is one of the most respected development leaders in South Asia today. He has built THP-Bangladesh into the country's largest volunteer-based organization, more than 260,000 strong.

As Country Director, Badiul’s pioneering work includes the development of the Vision, Commitment and Action Workshop, through which millions of rural people have changed their own lives. He also led the coalition that created National Girl Child Day in Bangladesh in 2001. This year, the UN is recognizing Girl Child Day globally for the first time.

Badiul has devoted his life to doing whatever it takes to call forth a self-reliant Bangladesh and the sustainable end of chronic hunger in his country. Check out this video of Badiul in action (prepared by THP-Australia in advance of a similar tour by Badiul there).

We hope you will join us to connect, learn and discover how we can participate in this phenomenal movement of social change. Click on links below to find out more information about the event in your area:
