Help Build an Eco-Tourism Boat

The Bangladesh Environment and Development Society (BEDS) seeks to make tourism an opportunity for the Mathurapur Fishing Village through a sustainable community-based tourism program. Involvement of the local community in the tourism activities will enable them to earn additional income and also enable them to teach visitors about the mangrove ecosystems and the local culture and heritage of the area. In line with this, BEDS is seeking to raise $50,000 to purchase a boat fit for tourists. The large capacity steel boat will be able to carry 50 persons at a time and will be equipped with a solar power system for lights, fans, and computer and mobile charging. Some of the funds raised will also be used to produce marketing and educational materials to teach visitors about the local culture and the importance of the mangrove ecosystem. These materials will include web design and development, social media page, and promotional leaflets for the tourism facilities. This project is part of a bigger plan to develop the tourism program in the Sundarbans Mangrove Region of Bangladesh, which includes improvement of accommodation facilities and capacity building of the target beneficiaries for conducting this social business
