Shop at Utsho’s café and Garage sale
Utsho has been running two stalls/kiosks since May 2010 in collaboration with International Organization for Migration IOM called Café Mukti. One of the stalls is located in Secretariat and the other one is in the Department of Women’s Affairs. IOM has provided the structures of the outlet and Utsho has been running the kiosks without any outside financial support. Your purchases create opportunities to earn funding that pays for food, education and healthcare for the children. Utsho also organizes ‘Garage sale’ with belongings that are no longer needed by private individuals. We collect these and organize sales for the lower income group of people. It is organized quarterly. We deeply appreciate your involvement by giving the things that you do not need anymore.
Utsho encourages people from all walks of life to volunteer in various activities within the organization. With this vision in mind Utsho has created a volunteer group called ‘Prottasha Volunteers Association’. As part of the first phase of Utsho’s Prottasha project, it is an attempt to establish a dedicated Youth Volunteer Group and raise awareness of the problem and struggle faced by the underprivileged children in Bangladesh. Utsho held a number of seminars with South Breeze School, Aga Khan School, Scholastica, Sunbeams, Eden Girls College and Department of Public Administration and University of Dhaka.
Utsho also gains tremendous support from volunteers from overseas, such as Australia, Denmark etc. Utsho appreciates the noble support from the volunteers and seek more assistance and participation from well-wishers, professionals, teachers, students, housewives, neighbors and friends on the programs of Human Rights Advocacy, Income Generative Project, Fundraising, Cultural Awareness Programs and Teaching.
