The Bangladesh innovation take-away - How the not for profit sector in Bangladesh is breaking new ground in social entrepreneurship
By Harriet Skinner Matsaert.
"While living in Bangladesh and working in the not-for-profit sector, I’ve been continuously interested, amazed and even perplexed by the activities of not-for-profit organisations. Bangladesh is so often portrayed as a disaster prone area, a passive recipient of aid. In fact this unique and dynamic country has many positive experiences to share. Talking to people in the UK not-for-profit sector has made me realise that there are areas where Bangladeshi non-profits could provide inspiration to their UK counterparts.
What follows is not intended to be a definitive study of the not for profit sector in Bangladesh, rather it is a review of some of the more exciting nfps I have come across and draws lessons from their experiences."
