Dhaka Ahsania Mission (DAM), a voluntary non-profit development organization is well-known for its activities in Bangladesh, which is contributing towards sustainable development for the poorest of the poor for the last 56 years. The Mission was established by an eminent educationalist, social reformer and Sufi Saint Hazrat Khan Bahadur Ahsanullah (R) in the year 1958. Being patronized by renowned personalities like Sher-e-Bangla A.K.Fazlul Haque and Dr. Md. Shahidullah, DAM has moved forward and attained today's high achievement owing to the highly motivated and dedicated work force and the continuous physical, mental and financial support of the general public. DAM is now willing to further increase the people's participation in its overall development activities so that it can be of more useful to the distressed people through undertaking different development projects with the regular physical, moral and financial support from you all.
With this view in mind, DAM has formed "Ahsania Mission Support Forum" with participation from all strata of population inclusive of professionals, service holders or other members of the public who are willing to contribute their time give support and provide regular financial contribution (monthly/quarterly) against various development activities. This is one of the fund raising methods now being followed globally by most of international agencies and charity organizations for implementing different projects in the developing world. As an example, "Arigato Foundation" in Japan has more than 35000 members; each of whom contributes 7000 Yen per month. As a result, its monthly collection comes to more than 24.50 crore yen equivalent to Tk. 19.355 crore. With this fund they can take any initiative for the cause of humanity any time they desire. Similarly, DAM hopes that Ahsania Mission Support Forum will be able to generate similar interest within the general public to make thousands of members through which DAM would initiate many projects with their contribution in the near future.
