RIC Established as a non-government organisation in 1981, RIC was founded by a group of distinguished social workers eager to support national development efforts in Bangladesh. Commencing operation with a relief, rehabilitation and financial assistance programme for rural women, RIC developed a traditional focus on rural sector development, targeting, in particular, women. Since that time, through innovation, dedication and hard work, RIC has been able to progress and diversify; to become a national-level NGO active across the country and in many development areas.
Today, RIC has thousands of employees and is able to mobilise many more volunteers to achieve development goals; from the isolated islands of the Bay of Bengal to poverty-stricken neighbourhoods in the heart of the capital city, RIC has established a solid reputation based on the achievement of tangible development outcomes. Working together with minority ethnic groups, working children and their guardians, the poor, the landless or the elderly, to name a few of the groups our projects have assisted; and through the formation of strategic alliances and partnerships with all levels of government, donor agencies, other NGOs and stakeholders, RIC has been able to realise its goal of facilitating development for Bangladesh and Bangladeshis.
