Background of the organization
A group of social workers under the leadership of Mr. Kazi Md. Abul Kalam Azad (a long experience & professional development activist) has been started AWARD for development initiatives in Sylhet in the year 1997. Because still the region belongs to relatively underserved, local development initiatives are not enough and potential, Government services are available in the urban/ Sammy urban or well communicated areas but not in remotes. The fundamentalist are playing a dominant role in the society where high population growth, high mortality and morbidity of pregnant mother & infant, high dropout in the primary education, poor reproductive health facilities, Women are deprived from their rights; public resources are under the control of the rich peoples, but the region Sylhet is well known for its public resources like kash land and natural fisheries (haor/baor) tea garden, gas & oil etc.
