The Executive Committee of the National Economic Council (ECNEC) recently approved Tk 6316.71 crore to build houses for another 2.50 lakh homeless families under the Ashrayan project. The government has approved the 4th revision of the Ashrayan-2 project and extended the tenure of the project up to June 2023.

On the occasion of ‘Mujib Borsho’, according to the Housing Policy for landless and homeless, a total of 250,000 families, including the landless and homeless families will be rehabilitated under the project.

The government's efforts to improve the life of the most disregarded 

population of 

our country deserve plaudits

This will bring a huge sigh of relief for the homeless people as they do not have to worry for a home anymore and on top of that those families who constantly struggle to pay rent will never ever have to worry about that. This will ultimately lead to boost their self-esteem.

Undeniably, offering houses to homeless people and their families will renew their hopes and dreams of taming poverty and increase their confidence. The recipients will not only be provided with houses but also with basic facilities and needs including health, education, and other utility services. Additionally, rudimentary rights will also be safeguarded for them, which will enhance their standard of living. Thus, by enjoying these facilities, they will have dreams of paving a new life in a new way.

The difficult period of pandemic has led our country and the whole world to extensive unemployment and economic adversity. Amid all these, this project came as a blessing for the marginalized people. The government's efforts to improve the life of the most disregarded population of our country deserve plaudits.
