As SpaandanB's noble idea of helping our beloved country was initially being inspired by our key founders, the root of success started to take shape with one of our first projects like CEMPAR.

It had provided scholarship for meritorious students at Mohipur Agriculture Training Institute (MATI), Sherpur, Bogra and at Elangi High School, Dhunot, Bogra. It also ran a poultry project, a goat-raising project, Bio-intensive Gardening, and a Fish & Duck Culture project through SpaandanB's donation. Total beneficiary in all the projects were approximately 40 families. CEMPAR distributed 38 goats to its 22 beneficiaries and within a year the number of goat increased to 85. The other notable success is that one of our scholarship recipients at MATI stood 5th in the technical education board.

Gonipur

Project Summary

Project Location
: Gonipur, Feni
Project Duration : 2001-2005
Total beneficiaries : 10 families
Total Donation sent : $3,865

Gonipur Poverty Alleviation Project (GPAP) started in March of 2001 in Gonipur, Feni to support ten land-less day laborers, vendors and rickshaw pullers. The primary purpose of GPAP was to make those ten eligible families self-reliant. In order to achieve such goal, a one-acre pond was leased for five years for fish cultivation. The technical assistance was provided by Bangladeshi experts working in a nearby Japanese NGO firm. Other forms of assistance, such as, free labor, security watch and much more, were provided by the members of GPAP. SpaandanB provided financial assistance to carry on this project. The yearly budget for GPAP project was $1,000.
During the course of this project's life (2001-2005), SpaandanB had sent $3,865 in total. Even though, GPAP was one of SpaandanB's most promising projects, the poor communication and reporting from our Bangladeshi liaisons prevented us to further continue with this project. In the year of 2005, SpaandanB had terminated sending financial assistance to GPAP project.
