About Us

Bangladesh Buddhist foundation, a non-political, non-profit, self-funded organization entirely dedicated to social welfare, came into being on 15 September, 1979. Its aims and objectives are manifold, but mainly focused on extending vital support to furtherance of education at higher secondary level, graduation and post-graduation levels. Bangladesh Buddhist Foundation (abbreviation for BBF) embraces the belief that education is the backbone of a nation. Buddhists in Bangladesh form a tiny minority in the demographic map of the nation, lacking in access to basic and higher education far behind than other segments of social groups of the nation.Awareness of this deficiency, Bangladesh Buddhist Foundation aims to overcome this problem by creating valuable, resourceful well-educated enlightened individuals who will strengthen the foundation of Buddhist society as well as national life. Other aims of Bangladesh Buddhist Foundation comprise projects and programmes designed to enkindle nascent talent and creative sensibility of youth and promote their development of personality and career advancement. It will endeavour to realize the mission embodied in the constitution of the organization in order to improve the standard of social, economic, and cultural life. It is determined to promote the ideals of amity, fraternity and compassion in personal and social spheres of life. Additionally, it has set itself the task of extending whole-hearted support to all development activities of Peoples Republic of Bangladesh. At the same time it resolves to uphold the image of Bangladesh internationally.

We acknowledge with immense gratitude and reverence the pioneering efforts and sincere initiative of Late Mr. Jyotish Chandra Barua, Late Mr. Hirendra Kishor Chowdhury, Late Advocate Sanjib Chandra Barua, Late Prafulla Kumar Barua and Late Shashanka Mohan Barua to bring Bangladesh Buddhist Foundation into being.
