Youth Exchange Project

Since 1991 Mitalee has been organising a youth exchange programme every other year with a partner group known as The Good Earth, based in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

The Good Earth is a NGO working towards raising awareness on environmental and health related issues.

The organisation is led by Selim Choudhury, who is a micro biologist and a renowned pop star in Bangladesh.

On each visit young people from Mitalee raise up to £15k through a range of fund raising efforts and gives opportunities to under privileged young people from different communities
and cultural backgrounds to travel to Bangladesh and take part in a range of social educational activities and at the same time gain better knowledge and understanding about the country, its people, culture and heritage.

In addition to fund raising Commonwealth Youth Exchange Council also provides financial assistance towards the costs of the programme.
