Bangladeshis, being a resilient nation since the birth of country, have always come up with initiatives where they raised fund for a good cause, be it for flood or cyclone or Rana plaza victims or medical treatment of a patient. As much as we appreciate every philanthropic initiative that signifies our character as a nation, we also understand that a lot of them have been questioned later on for lack of transparency, and trust. Many initiatives fell flat not because of intentions, but simply because of poor management or lack of know-how around working in a new region with underprivileged population or during a disaster, which requires years of hands-on experience in the field.
Therefore, “Cholo Shobai” wants to bring private and social organizations, NGOs and individuals who have proved their capacity and intention over some time under one platform so it is easier for an individual who does not have time or network to verify the initiative can be assured of the authenticity. While this is very common in Western countries, and even in our neighboring countries like India, it has not been explored in Bangladesh until now in an institutional capacity where there is a verification framework in place. The amount being raised against each initiative is open for everyone to see.
Cholo Shobai Team, however, does not do or intend to do any audit of any campaign, nor it has any intention to implement the projects on their own. It is simply a platform for credible institutions, NGOs and individuals to pitch for general people to make an informed decision based on the fact presented in the site, and word-of-mouth reputation
