History of Establishment

The Story of Ekmattra

In the heart of Dhaka city, in 2003, a compassionate spark ignited within us as we witnessed the plight of rootless and disadvantaged children navigating the rough streets. The vulnerability of these children on the verge of exploitation and abuse struck a chord. Faced with existing social injustice and discrimination, they were forced to live miserable lives with no practical alternatives, forcing them to turn to unjust means of survival. As a result of this harsh reality, we developed a strong desire to make a meaningful impact. While we lacked a concrete plan for forming an organization at the time, our commitment prompted us to launch an open sky school for these children. Our initial focus was on imparting basic life skills, teaching words and numbers, providing health and hygiene education, and providing some recreational activities such as singing, painting, and outdoor games. We believed that education combined with entertainment could help them escape the monotony of their lives. However, as we delved deeper into their needs, we discovered that they required more than just food, clothing, shelter, and education. The desire for close mental support and a sense of family became evident. Recognizing the limitations of the resources available to children living on the streets, we began a new phase of planning. We reached out to others who shared our vision, seeking support to turn our dream of building a brighter future for these children into a reality. Ekmattra Society was officially formed in 2004, and received registration [S-3850(639)] from the Joint Stock Company Act authorities of the Government of People's Republic of Bangladesh. Our journey began with the establishment of a temporary rescue center and shelter home in the Mirpur area, which housed 13 children and one dedicated staff member. This marked the beginning of our mission to provide a safe haven of care, compassion, and opportunity for those in the most dire need.

From the very beginning, I was impressed to see the activities of the children under the able guidance of the Ekmattra Management. I am happy to see that over the years the sphere of the group has been widened with new facilities for children. The creation of Ekmattra DBBL Academy at Haluaghat, Mymensingh has been a remarkable manifestation of one of their major achievements. I hope the efforts of the management would not only benefit the limited number of children within the campus but would also encourage others in our society to create similar philanthropic facilities elsewhere for a large number of poverty-stricken underprivileged children of the country.
