Mennonite Central Committee Canada is supporting Mennonite Central Committee Bangladesh with a five-year agriculture and livelihoods project in communities in Dinajpur, Rangpur, Mymensingh, and Sherpur districts, Bangladesh.

In these regions, approximately 80% of people suffer from food insecurity due to poverty and lack of production, cultivable land, market access and government services. Over five years, this project aims to improve food security among households by working with them to increase local food production through activities like kitchen gardens and livestock rearing; increasing awareness on the importance of good nutrition such as dietary diversity; and establishing and strengthening income generating groups that will provide training on livelihood diversification, marketing, and financial savings.

Over five years, the project plans to work with 5,500 households (approximately 24,769 people).
