The next step should be multi-storey urban housing to make the best use of scarce land
Kudos to the government of Bangladesh for working to ensure that soon, no one will have to live without a home in this country. To be realistic, there is much work to be done before this goal can be achieved, but already, giant steps are being taken in the right direction.
As part of the Ashrayan 2 Project, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina handed over 53,340 houses to landless and homeless families. This is a massive undertaking, and it is good to see it becoming reality. The success of the initiative can be seen in the testimonials, as Birangana Shila Gulo said: “I was a street beggar once, but now I own a house.”
