Christian Aid supports Gana Unnayan Kendra (GUK) towards CHS Alliance membership
Gana Unnayan Kendra (GUK), a community-led development organisation combating poverty in Bangladesh, has recently joined CHS Alliance. This is largely due to the hard work of Nahed Chowdhury, widely known as ‘Lucky Apa’ in the humanitarian sector in Bangladesh, in partnership with Christian Aid.
In the last years, within the framework of Shifting the Power, a project aiming to strengthen national humanitarian and development agencies, Christian Aid has supported Lucky and her NGO to apply the Core Humanitarian Standard (CHS) and join CHS Alliance. Lucky has spearheaded GUK’s application process and guided other national agencies along the way.
The project is being delivered by a consortium led by ActionAid and the Catholic Agency for Overseas
Development (CAFOD), and including Christian Aid, Tearfund, Oxfam and Concern.
