Richard Hubbard talks about the Basic Needs Program from Richmond Magazine on Vimeo.

The Basic Needs Program is a student-led charity dedicated to protecting the well being of desperately poor children.

Disaster

Dear Friends, I wanted to update you on some recent events in Bangladesh. As many of you know, there was a tragic loss of life in the past few weeks following the collapse of a garment factory building outside of Dhaka. Over 1,000 people have died. However, our workers in Bangladesh were able to help save lives and comfort the injured in their time of need.

A New Lease on Life

Dear Friends, Doing the work we do, it is sometimes hard to qualify the effects we have on people's lives. We can come up with statistics we say that we help so many number of children get free education, or we have bought this number of kids new school books. However, it is much more challenging to describe how this impacts peoples lives in a personal and spiritual way.

More Success!

Dear Friends, Every year, the government of Bangladesh provides a national scholarship for its best and brightest students. Only students with high academic achievement can even sit for the required exam. Students who achieve the scholarship get some financial assistance for their education, but, more importantly, they get some much-deserved recognition. Schools also use it as a barometer of their success of failure.
