Why Bangladesh?
Individually the 5 founders of BANG consortium had philanthropic aspirations.  We realized these collectively as a new business idea during 2004 over numerous cups of tea while our children played.  Our chairperson, Paula Rogers, had worked in international trade of consumer goods for many years, and had come across BRAC some years earlier.  With her years of experience, she realized immediately how capable this organization was, with a huge logistical network supervising design, production and quality.  BRAC was our first choice of fair trade producers.
