About Us

(DEARS) is a non-profit and non-political organization that has been working for social, economical and environmental development of the poor and marginal people of the southwest coastal region of Bangladesh since 2005. The previous name of DEARS was Manab Kallayan Shangstha (MKS). The name was changed to DEARS in 2016 to address a government regulation and to avoid the duplication of another organization in the NGO Affairs Bureau. When unplanned shrimp cultivation, river erosion and various natural disasters compelled the coastal people to migrate to urban areas during the early 2000s, DEARS emerged from a local club to a development organization to stand beside vulnerable people to support their livelihood security and establish their rights. DEARS is registered under the Social Welfare Department Government of Bangladesh. DEARS is working with landless, marginal farmers, labour and women headed families, children and adolescents in the climate vulnerable area of Bangladesh.
