DOMES FOR THE WORLD FOUNDATION
Domes For The World Foundation's (www.dftw.org/
) mission is to improve the lives of people worldwide through the introduction and construction of Monolithic Domes and EcoShells for personal and public use.
DFTW Foundation is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) tax status organization which provides training, tools and methods for constructing not only superior shelter but complete community systems to those who need them most. Monolithic EcoShell Domes are at the heart of those methods. Inadequate shelter is a detriment, pulling down those living in poverty. Seventy percent of Sub-Saharan Africa, fifty percent of South Asia, and twenty-five percent of Latin America and the Caribbean populations are living in extremely substandard housing. Slum dwellers face death caused by water borne and respiratory illnesses. There is a great need to improve their quality of living.

HOME OF THE CHAMPIONS
We started our orphanage named “Home of the Champions” on the 1st November 2007 in Anandapur village, Savar under Dhaka district where at present 21 orphans from the poor and underprivileged family background including sexually abused and street children are being supported with food, shelter, clothing, education, medical aid and other amenities of life. Our initial plan is to support 30 children of such status. This orphanage stands on our present own land which cannot accommodate 30 children. The children are aging, so the girls require to be separated from the boys for which buying land and building construction will be necessary. Our present need is also financial supports for operating expenses of the orphanage.
Hope Foundation (www.hopeforbangladesh.org/
) was founded to address the needs of the women and children of Bangladesh, Hope Foundation supports the Cox's Bazar Hospital for Women and Children and Hope Medical Centers which aim to serve millions of people by providing education, acute medical care, treatment, and the rehabilitation of sick, injured, disabled and destitute women and children of Bangladesh. Bangladesh has a high rate of illiteracy, frequent natural disasters and lack of natural resources that constantly erodes its social and financial infrastructure. Despite tremendous efforts by hardworking Bangladeshis to improve their lives, the standard of living is constantly declining.
Bangladesh has an extremely high infant and child mortality rate. Most of these deaths could be prevented with a mass education program of preventative health and early intervention to manage infectious conditions. The ratio of healthcare workers and health facilities is extremely low and consequently, the health needs of this country are vastly unmet.Due to overwhelming financial constraints of the Bangladesh government, these health needs cannot be addressed only through the local government.
Interburns (International Network of Training Education and Research in Burns -www.interburns.org) aims to reduce the death and disability (mortality and morbidity) and other negative consequences that are common post burn injury in low income countries. Interburns believes that simple, cheap and effective treatment of burns can save lives and prevent untold suffering. Interburns was founded as a registered UK charity in 2006 by 3 surgeons from UK, India and Pakistan. Interburns has a global team of health care professionals and a global mandate because 95% of the worlds burn injuries occur in low and middle income countries, 70% of these burns affect children. Burn injuries in many low income countries often affects more people than those diagnosed with HIV, malaria, and TB especially amongst women and children.
Worldwide burns care is often not popular burn patients are often likely to live in poverty, treatment is long and hard outcomes are often poor or disastrous. Currently Interburns has a number of main strategies to achieve its stated aims: (1) The Essential Burn Care course. This course is a standardised course devised by Interburns and conducted over one day using interactive, innovative methods of teaching and learning. It covers the burn journey from prevention of injury through to rehabilitation. Doctors, nurses, therapists who treat burn patients in any kind of facility commonly attend. The course is taught by an International team of burn care experts, which is always a mix of faculty from low and high income countries. To date Interburns has run 32 courses in Africa and Asia. (2) Conducting basic, practically applicable, relevant research into prevention and treatment of burns injuries which is relevant to low income environments. (3)Interburns is involved in the production of educational material which supports learning in burns care and sustains change of practice.
