CLP facilitates partnership between Standard Chartered & MMS aimed at bringing education and health to the chars
CLP is very proud to have facilitated an important partnership between one of our implementing organisations, Manab Mukti Sangsta (MMS), and Standard Chartered Bank. The so-called “Comprehensive Education and Health Program for Sirajganj Char Area People” will bring much-needed health and education resources to the chars.
The initiative will benefit extremely poor residents of a remote char in Sirajgonj. It aims to provide child-friendly learning environments as well as achieve water, sanitation, hygiene and general health outcomes for households living on the char.
At the official partnership signing on 7 March 2016, CLP’s Team Leader Mat Pritchard said, “this is a very proud moment for CLP. One of our goals was to help form partnerships between stakeholders that would bring additional resources, services and assistance into the chars to benefit poor chars-dwellers. Standard Chartered and MMS have done just that and we congratulate them. We also hope this will be the start of a sustainable partnership that will keep helping chars-dwellers into the future.”
At the end of 2015, CLP also facilitated another partnership aimed at offering health services to vulnerable people on the chars. That was between the Center for Zakat Management and ASEAB, another one of our implementing partners. Read more about the partnership here: http://bit.ly/CZM-MoU
