Bangladeshi Miraz leads a public welfare project for the Ban Ki-moon Center for Global Citizens

The project, “Assistance to Backward Communities”, provides education and medical care to children with physical and mental disabilities, a press release said on Monday.

It aims to build self-reliance through the education and training of homeless unemployed youth, and various other public welfare activities, including the education of helpless elderly people.

Project Manager Miraz and his team will complete the project within three months.

The Ban Ki-moon Center for Global Citizens is a semi-international organization based in Vienna, Austria, the statement added.

Its main objective is to create a world based on universal respect for human rights, regardless of age, gender, identity, religion or nationality, where sustainable development requires citizenship shared by shared responsibility, understanding and empathy.

Miraz reportedly said, “We work for helpless children, young people and old people. We want to empower disadvantaged people in society through proper education and training.

“Everyone who works with us is a volunteer. As a Bangladeshi, being able to serve the people of the country as well as working for the people internationally is a great achievement for me.

Miraz is the director of an organization in Bangladesh. He previously served as Deputy Project Manager on a number of United Nations projects based in Canada. He did another similar project in Chicago, USA.
