Quick Donation

Bangladesh has thousands of rivers lining the country, and as a result, fishing is a primary source of their diet and also livelihood. As a result, a fishing boat for a poor family is a huge help and also empowering. This method allows an individual to not only fish but to become a sole trader. Thus, empowering him and his family to move out of poverty to normality, and not depend on handouts. Furthermore, owning a boat outright allows the fisherman to be highly independent and avoid abuse and exploitation.
The fishing boat project is a unique project whereby GYTF distributes boats thanks to the kind and generous donors who want to see people coming out of poverty and dependency and be able to earn their own living without having to rent/hire from exploitative owners. The savings made from this will only enhance their living conditions.

“I never fail to reward any worker among you for any work you do, be you male or female – you are equal to one another.” (Qur’an, 3: 195)

Fishing Boat Project In Bangladesh

The availability of rivers and fens means that Bangladesh is rich in fish, it is, of course, one of the staple foods. Thus, making it very accessible for individuals to fish and earn a living. Those living in the rural parts of Bangladesh in particular have access to these rivers and fens. However, not many have their own boats which are an impediment to them to progress in their livelihood. One will either rent or hire from owners, whom, at times can exploit the poor or in some cases abuse these individuals.

GYTF aims to distribute these boats so that they can manage their livelihood and continually sustain an income that will inevitably take them out of poverty in due course. We cover many districts across Bangladesh due to our extensive and exclusive access and contacts, enabling us to make a major difference to the rural communities across Bangladesh. We hope that with the generosity of our donors we can continue to support such vulnerable families so that they can have a better future.

Fishing Boat Project Moulvibazar

I feel overjoyed thanks to GYTF. They have given me freedom by giving me a fishing boat. I used to be dependent on an owner who would take a lump from my income, but now, I can bring all the earnings home for my family. I am so grateful that words cannot express. I pray for those who have supported us and hope they receive the blessings that they deserve.

Fishing Boat Project Moulvibazar

I was struggling to make ends meet as my income was very low. I am a day labourer and it is hard to maintain a family. Since GYTF handed this boat I am able to fish and make a regular steady income without having to depend on handouts. I am also able to think ahead and support my children with their schooling. I pray that Allah rewards the donors who have donated this boat to people like me.
