Our objective is to contribute to the development of Bangladesh by providing English language teaching (ELT) services through support to various aid projects and the work of Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs). Additionally, we seek to respond to the needs of private and public sector organisations in Bangladesh through the provision of tailored programmes both on and off-site.
