Vision and Mission

Together with its associated agencies and support organizations, the Foundation envisions that the natural ecosystem and biodiversity resources of the forests in Bangladesh are maintained in a sustainable manner by responsible stakeholders through collective efforts – providing access and benefits to local communities, national economy and the humankind at large in an equitable manner.

In regard to its own future, the vision of the Arannayk Foundation is to become:

  • the premier agency in creating partnership among the public and private sector organizations and institutions engaged in activities relating to forestry;
  • the leader for intervening between the private and public sector agencies to coordinate all forestry-sector activities following a systematic method;
  • a top developer of models for poverty alleviation through forestry related activities; and
  • financial support provider in the forestry sector.

Arannayk's mission is to facilitate the conservation, protection, restoration and sustainable use and management of tropical forests in Bangladesh, which provide a wide range of benefits to humankind. Its key objectives are the following:

  • Dedicated to, and a key player in successfully promoting and accomplishing activities that support tropical forest conservation and biodiversity protection.
  • To develop conservation partnership among the NGOs, the Government and the private sector concerning forest conservation on privately owned or leased tea estates.
  • To demonstrate that conservation can provide a sustainable alternative to the present sources of incomes and values generated from the exploitation of natural tropical forests.
  • To generate sufficient complimentary funding in order to provide financial grants to qualified organizations engaged in activities aimed at conservation, protection, restoration and management of tropical forest and biodiversity assets of Bangladesh.
  • To facilitate capacity development of stakeholders to ensure sustainable alternative income and employment opportunities for local communities particularly for the poor whose lives depend on natural resources.
