“Payra Social welfare” is completely non-political, non-profit organization. It works in economically weaker students, disaster management, health, and other social activities in Bangladesh.
Our beloved motherland Bangladesh is still backward in many ways than the developed countries of the world. There are many problems related to illiteracy, prejudice, poverty, undisclosed industries, backward linkage system etc. So we do not stop. People never stop. In spite of many problems, when we saw the news in newspapers and various media outlets that some children of poor parents are working as a cobbler for their education costs, pulling rickshaw or working as servant only for living and achieve the best position in the class we feel proud and new hope. Again, it is seen in the news that a teacher is teaching without salary and selling labor at a brick field for livelihood. It is also published that a poor rickshaw pulls up all his savings in charitable medical center. The news touches our heart, feels persecution in the heart. As a society man, do something for other people. We have a kind of responsibility that we get as much as possible from society, but how much do we give or want to give? We believe that we have responsibilities for other people in society as a social person. From this realization in 2011, a few students, young people gathered and decided to do something for the people. So, with our small financial savings and collaboration, on 1 February 2011 unanimously, we formed a completely non-profit, non-political and volunteer organization.
We believe that the positive ethical change of the people is the change in the country and society. There is no substitute of 100 percent educated and resourceful people for bringing this desired change and creating a prosperous society.
Therefore, the main goal of our overall program is to provide necessary help to the students who are not being able to study due to lack of education or to be deprived of education for other reason, and to arrange emergency volunteers for the people during a national and natural disaster. Our dream is a well-educated rich human society. The source of our inspiration for implementing our dreams is those great people who have been unselfishly working to form a human society and are still doing it. We respect the great people who have given their lives to love this country and people.
