World Youth Army is a volunteering organization. We started our journey during Covid-19 pandemic. Because of Covid-19 educational institutes have been closed since March 2020. Bangladesh is a developing country and is not fully technology equipped. Students are the future of our country, thus, World Youth Army launched a project to distribute educational materials to those students who can’t afford them now because of lockdown. Family income has stopped. Students are in need of educational materials.

Also, we are delivering necessary food items to poor helpless people. Till now, we have distributed relief to 500+ families from 14 Districts of Bangladesh. We encourage people to raise awareness by posting stories of hunger and poverty in their communities.

We helped many students and teachers who were unable to get access to resources for relief. Our volunteers also do groundwork by going door to door and collecting data from poverty stricken families to see where more concentration of assistance is required. Our vision is to erase poverty and hunger.

Our next vision is to work with Youths to enhance their social responsibilities.

The goal of the employable skills training is to help participants develop the skills they need to achieve their career objectives. The workshop takes 48 to 52 hours to complete and is taught in four units: (My Goal, My Resources, My Interaction with Resources and My Continued Success).

We realized that there was a massive issue with hygiene and sanitation and assisted to aid with the situation.
