In and around Kaliganj

Potter

Every country is has its own unique terrain and cultural traditions. If you ever get a chance to visit, you’ll agree that Bangladesh is a country best recognised for its vibrant market places, winding roads and resourceful people.

During our giving trip, whilst most occupations in smaller villages lay in agriculture, we found Kaliganj’s arts and crafts to be a distinct part of the community. As pictured above, such beautiful pottery is used by families to store water, food and household items – in fact, the meals for the children that you support are made with some locally made crockery. Since Bangladesh is a nation built on a floodplain, the rich, clay soil provides plenty of material for Kaliganj’s potters to work with!
