In Rangpur and Bogra, two of the poorest regions of northern Bangladesh, patchwork rugs made from recycled materials and seagrass baskets are manufactured for KiK. Through these products KiK is not only creating jobs but also improving the lives of local workers. This improvement is achieved in two ways. Firstly, people can now find work in their own area and are not forced to migrate to industrial regions. Secondly, the profits from both products benefit a range of local projects: schools, medical facilities, nurseries and a drinking water project are funded.
