I stepped in IAA in 1986 when I was only 4 years old. There I was growing up in a very warm and friendly environment. I finished my graduation and now I am working. I am happily married and I still hold those glorious moments and keep a strong and untouchable memory in my life of IAA. I am truly grateful to Kawamura aunty who made all these possibility.

"It is not important where you are from however it is very important where you go" Boro Vhai (Md. Azizul Bari) always said this to us. His words worked as a manufacturer of our dreams. He always enlightened us with his thoughts and ideas. I graduated M.A in law from Rajshahi University and now I am working as an assistant District Judge. I would like to thank to all the Japanese people for developing our humanity.

Konabari, Gazipur

I started my journey in IAA as a little girl who was scared of expressing her views and thoughts. As days passed I learned how to dream, I learned how to be a better person from this organization. Now I am 1st year student of MA. I have been to Japan on a language scholarship program. Since then I dream of doing something bigger for the people in life. Finally my window of thought has widely opened. Of course all these credits came from none other than IAA.

2. Student Help Program

Human resource development is very important for our populated country. Education is the backbone of nation. Keeping this in mind, the Organization provides scholarship to poor & meritorious students from Class VI to University level. Now a number of 4,500 students are receiving the opportunity to continue their study. Then we are supporting the fund to those who are suffering to pay SSC & HSC Examination fee.

Comilla, Bangladesh

I was only a student of High School when my parents started having difficulties to support me for my further education. Since 1992 International Angel Association has been supporting me continuously till 2006 when I finally completed my M.Sc from Chittagong University.

Now I am working as the first executive officer in Jamuna Bank. If IAA would not have provided me with its generous support, I doubt I could have made it like this. It is not just me. There are about a thousand of other students who have been provided with the similar support and who are now successfully playing their roles in the society. I am thanking IAA from the bottom of my heart on behalf of all the other that IAA has been supporting.

I have lost my father in a very young age. We are ten brothers and sisters at that time. It was really difficult for me to continue with my education.

I was almost giving up when the light of International Angel Association reached my steps.

I was benefited by a stipend every month. This helps me to complete my M.B.B.S course from Shere Bangla Medical College. I am working successfully as a doctor in a hospital since 2009.

I am truly grateful to IAA for their kind support. I would like to repay this kindness that IAA offered me by providing health care to people.

Md.Shamim Mia

Kapasia, Gazipur, Bangladesh

My father was a marginal farmer, however I always dream of doing something great in life unlike him. I was more into studies rather than helping my father with agriculture. When my father was unable to provide me with all the expenses required for education, I was going to give up my hope. But soon I was provided with its humble support from IAA. I completed my M.Ag from Bangladesh Agriculture University. Then I joined as a lecturer in Patuakhali Science and Technology University in 2009. IAA provides the educational support to over 4500 students every month. A huge number of students got their dreams fulfilled through IAA like me. I cannot express my gratitude towards IAA in words.

I am truly grateful. I left Neherland on a scholarship program for further education in 2011. I'll be back to my country after my PHD. Then I help as many as I can.

After my father died, I have my mother and 7 brothers & sisters. So I have to do something for my life. So I had to admit this training center. After completing this course I went back to my village and teach 10 women what I learned. So I got teaching fee every month and use this money for my young brothers' and sisters' education expenses. If I could not admit this institute, my life might be corrupted. Also I learned about the manner and rules for group activities. These are so useful for my life. Thank you very much for Japanese volunteers who support this program.

Ghatail, Tangail, Bangladesh

After completing my SSC, I was uncertain about what to do as I did not have the chance to carry out my education. Then I came to know about IAA's Agriculture Training Program and I got into the 25th batch in2008 with 30 other rural women. After completing the course, I came back to my village and stared a poultry farm with 500 broiler chicks, 5 cows, and 5 goats.

During my training I have learned how to vaccinate cattle. So now along with the poultry farm I also vaccinate all the animals around the village.

Now I am a self-reliant woman and a thousand of other rural women like me got the chance to become self-sufficient. I would like to thank IAA for creating this excellent opportunity for rural women.
