Rana Plaza Stipend: Savar Young Men’s Christian Association is a universal volunteerism movement organization. So we give particular importance to Man & Woman and ensure to join Youth participants in our Society and try to established humanitarian society according to our Christian ideals with love, justice, and peace.

We know Rana Plaza Tragedy that happened on 24 April 2013, the Rana Plaza building's collapse in Savar, Dhaka. This housed five garment factories and killed at least 1,132 people, and injured more than 2500 people.

So we Savar YMCA took the immediate initiative to help some families who lost their parents or earners with Y's Men Club Dhaka Central's support. Then we collect data about ten needy families, and we start to financial support from 4 October 2013 and still now. We support ten Children for their study purpose because, after the tragedy, they couldn't continue their school. So we thought if they continue their study one day, they will overcome their present situations. We decided to give them a minimal 1000 (one thousand) taka per month per children's. Every six months, we arrange a Stipend program to get their money together 6.000 (six thousand) taka because they come from different parts of Bangladesh and remote areas. We place this program after six months for their favorableness. We give them Eid gifts also.

Their families are so happy to get this support, and children’s are continuing their study nicely. Many of them are studying in college now and doing well. We Savar YMCA will always stand beside them.
