Short description:
Bangladesh Youth First Concerns (BYFC) was formed in 1995 as a Christian humanitarian and development organisation to address the needs of young people and to help them find employment. A group of professionals, Christian business people, clergymen and youth leaders of many churches founded BYFC. With an initial encouragement from a similar Christian organisation, Bangladesh Youth First Concerns launched its operation in assisting poverty stricken people, school dropouts and unemployed youths in their quest for a meaningful life and to earn a living for their basic needs.
BYFC started its operation by hosting seminars on awareness building, anti- drug and narcotics education, skill development for income generation and disaster preparedness activities. We have been focusing our developmental activities in an integrated manner for more socially and environmentally sound transformation in the years to come. The main target of BYFC is youth groups in local communities. Through organising seminars, workshops, youth camps and development programs BYFC seeks to prepare the youths for the responsibilities of family life, citizenship, working spirit, and moral values. We do this by providing training on awareness building, better living and other development activities for a desired life style.
