Due to recent instability in Bangladesh, we've decided to delay the launch of our programmes in this country indefinitely.

In the meantime, please consider our exciting and long-established programmes in Sri Lanka and Nepal, or get in touch to find out more about projects we offer in a wide range of other destinations.

Projects Abroad provides the opportunity for volunteers to travel with purpose to Bangladesh. 

Bordering India, Bangladesh is home to lush vegetation and nearly fifty wildlife sanctuaries. It is also one of the most populated countries in the world. More than 98 per cent of Bangladeshis speak Bengali, the country’s official language and locals enjoy their traditional meal of fish and rice and different types of biryani dishes. Although Bangladesh is one of the biggest peacebuilding forces to the United Nations, the country struggles with challenges that include poverty, famine, political issues and urban pollution.

Where You Will Live in Bangladesh with Projects Abroad

Projects Abroad is based in the capital in city of Dhaka, which is also known as the City of Mosques and described as the Venice of the East. Dhaka offers a humid tropic savanna climate and has a lively cultural scene. Volunteers will live with a local host family in Dhaka who will welcome them into their home and help them become part of the local community.

Tourism and travel in Bangladesh

Volunteers living and working in Dhaka will have plenty of opportunity to explore the stunning landscape around them, both over the weekends or after completing their placement.

Some of the top places to travel include the Dhakeshwari Temple, the Star Mosque and the well-known Lalbagh Fort, which was built in 1678 by then Viceroy of Bengal Prince Mohammad Azam. Dhaka has a very rich history and volunteers will be able to learn more about it at the Liberation War Museum and the Bangladesh national museum in the city centre.
