Our goal is to bring unity among our Bangladeshi community by performing community activities. We sponsor a wide variety of events and activities, especially Bangladesh Day celebrating Independence Day every year.

By participating in volunteer activities, we try to spread awareness about Bangladesh while helping the community.
