About usManab Mukti Sangstha (MMS) is a local level NGO established in 1984 at Rahaimandalbhog in Sthal Char of Chowhali Upazila under Sirajgonj District with a view to “see a society free from poverty, discrimination and risk of natural disasters’. The organization obtained registration from the Department of Social Services in 1984 and the NGO Affairs Bureau in 1990.
MMS is currently working in Sirajganj, Tangail and Pabna Districts, the most disaster prone and poverty stricken areas in the northern part of Bangladesh. The people of these areas are backward, victimized and vulnerable by natural disasters like river erosion, flood, drought, cold wave and tornado. Most of the people are passing their lives under poverty line due to lack of employment opportunity, low income and inadequate services. They do not have ability to meet their basic needs. About 30% of population is living in chronic poverty (extreme poverty) situation and staying out of mainstream development interventions where poverty has been increasing day by day.
