Through need-based training for Ashrai along with venue and dormitory support to different development organizations and service oriented organizations, the Ashrai Research and Training Center (ARTC) plays a role that is essential to the development sector. It is located in the Paba Upazilain Rajshahi.
Moreover, we have an arrangement for seminars and conferences, a spacious dining facility, equipped with water, fresh fruits and vegetables, which accommodate up to 100 people at a time, a strong generator for an uninterrupted power supply, and round the clock security.
The Institute of Social Research and Applied Anthropology serves as a resource centre for issues on poverty, the poor and the marginalized ethnic minorities especially of North West Bangladesh and attempts to come up with practical solutions to their problems via research. ISRAA also pilot tests specific interventions in the field, and furnishes practitioners, policy makers and funders with good practice lessons.
ISRAA is managed and operated by an organizing committee of 35 members from different Universities and Research Institute and is situated at ARTC premises with an office, a library, and an anthropological museum (in a process of organization).
