The organization Al-Falah Bangladesh was formed in June 1981 to take over the Dhaka Camps project from an NGO HEED Bangladesh.
It is registered with the NGO Affairs Bureau of Bangladesh as a non-political, non-religious, non-profit social welfare NGO.
Al-Falah Bangladesh is the only registered NGO in Bangladesh, which has pledged in its Constitution to work for the Urdu speaking Bangladeshi citizens to rehabilitate them socially and economically in the mainstream of the society by increasing their access to education, skill, health and economic opportunities. The mass of this Urdu-speaking community lost the privileges of social living being the worst victims of political and historical developments in 1971 that downgraded their social, cultural and economic status from top to bottom level.
Since its foundation, Al-Falah has been delivering health services in Geneva Camp through its project Al-Falah Model Clinic.
Since 2007, our focus has shifted to education & skill development through Education Development Program (EDP) which established Foundation schools and
sponsorship program for the camp based Urdu-speaking poor male and female students to continue their education from pre-primary to Degree level.
Another project is for skill development, under which community students are being trained on basic computer literacy.
