Urban Extreme Poor Program

Providing a safety net for the Urban Extreme Poor population is a vital component for a thriving society. SAJIDA Foundation’s Urban Extreme Poor Program (SUEPP) is working to address this issue. Through initiatives such as the Emergency Food Response, Health and Livelihood (EFHL), and Amarao Manush’s Hygiene kit and Food Distribution, the program is set to change the story for many.

SAJIDA Foundation’s Urban Extreme Poor Program (SUEPP) launched Emergency Food Response, Health and Livelihood (EFHL) initiative;  a long-term multi-phase program that aims to deliver efficient social protection to the Urban Extreme Poor. The first phase of the program has been initiated in Chandpur, Gazipur, and Dhaka. Program participants are receiving vouchers that can be exchanged for a cooked meal from local restaurants and a cotton mask from a network of local suppliers. In the long-term, the initiative shall expand by building a safety net ensuring food security, livelihood recovery, micro-business setup, along with access to healthcare service.

Vaccine Registration Drive

In the current climate of the pandemic, experts suggest that vaccination is the most effective long-term strategy to protect lives. SAJIDA Foundation, through its programs such as: Microfinance, Amrao Manush and WASH has facilitated vaccine registration for its program participants from underserved communities.

In the current climate of the pandemic, experts suggest that vaccination is the most effective long-term strategy to protect lives. To facilitate vaccine registration for underserved communities, SAJIDA Foundation’s Amrao Manush program initiated a vaccination registration drive in Maniknagar Dhaka, ensuring protection for over 3,500 individuals. Through the WASH program’s, Addressing WASH Crisis Among RMG  workers project approximately 5,000 RMG workers aged 40 years and above, from 3 factories in Narayanganj, have been registered by SAJIDA Foundation for receiving COVID-19 vaccine through registration in the “Surakkha” app.
