Habitat for Humanity

Project Name: Kancha Haat a Paka Bari

Beyond financial inclusion aspiration MetLife Foundation is also supporting the cause of Habitat for Humanity by engaging its associates in building homes for the poor and marginalized people in Bangladesh. This is flagship program that takes place every year to boost the employee moral by engaging them in volunteering actions.
