INTRODUCTION

The socio-economic condition of Bangladesh is not better than mostly other developing countries. About 63.5% people of Bangladesh live in village and most of them are poor. They cannot fulfill even meet of their basic needs.  They are fighting with a lot of problems malnutrition, unhygienic environment, minimum health facilities, unemployment, poverty, illiteracy and so on. But it is fact that the lion share of the national income is given by those neglected people. In other words, the real development of a country like Bangladesh depends on the development of the villages. More appropriately, the integrated development is needed for a country to be developed. Looking into these hard fact VIDA started its works with some commitments are objectives.
