In the year 2020-2021 ESDO has made a significant progress towards our Vision and Mission i.e. establishing an equitable society through reducing poverty and hunger for poor and marginalized people.

We have made notable achievement in livelihood improvement, food security and nutrition, education, women empowerment, health for child and adolescents, community hygiene, reduction of child labor and rights for ethnic minorities.
