Founder and CEO (2003-2021)

Bangladesh as a nation is growing up in a world that is changing rapidly, therefore the balance of development is shifting. Yet Innovations are making the world a “global village”. Since its inception in 2003, from Eminence, we believe that the development has no boundaries, has no lines and maps. All it has is partnerships and the vision to move forward. The priority on these has made the pathway and shaped our goal by creating the line between what to do and what not to do. In the past decade, we have seen remarkable progress in the country’s human development index but at the same time, we have faced some unexpected obstacles. We believe these challenges will shape the future of this nation. In this manner, identifying the key elements and crucial requirements, we will take the existed economical and social diversity as an opportunity rather a hindrance in the path which will transform into something that pays off. We believe the key for the progression of a nation underlies In the recognition of the contribution of every individual. Our activities will focus on spreading this concern to the people irrespective of class, social orders, and divisions. Hence, we are working to flourish the potential of the people, especially, infirm and deprived ones so that society will run in the direction of balance and equanimity. With this dream for development, we aim to hold ourselves accountable and track our progress against our strategic priorities. Therefore, we will draw our technical expertise, organizational strength, and worldwide partnerships to fulfill our mission: for creation, promotion, dissemination, and translation of evidence-based knowledge into policy and practice, to ensure equity and justice in relation to health and other fundamental needs. Together we will act for the country’s potential, hope, and promise for a brighter future—and thereby create a better world for all of us.
