“I couldn’t have achieved the gold medal without the support of the staff of the ‘Service Improvement through Collective Response project’ of Bangladesh Disaster Preparedness Centre , funded by Manusher Jonno Foundation”, stated the Chairman of Koiarbil Union of  Kutubdia. He added that he made a promise during the election that he will work for the welfare of the citizen but didn’t know how until the members of BDPC-MJF team extended their hands to show him the way.” I am also enjoying my contribution for the society and the delight cannot be explained in words”, he said. He stressed on how the people of Koiarbil are happy with the development.

Kutubdia lies at the southern most end of the district of Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh. A beautiful island surrounded by the Bay of Bengal. Koiarbil is the smallest island of Kutubdia and Mr. Mohammad Azamgir is the elected chairman of this union, a man who works honestly with the intention of helping people.

When the Government of Bangladesh gave a circular for the 2012-2013 VGD card holders BDPC-MJF motivated him to conduct an election through participatory selection process. The proposal included the reformation of Union Parishad VGD Election Committee, conduction of meetings with the members of the committee, conduction of orientation, writing and distribution of letters among the respected members of the union, announcement in the area, making appeal form, decoration, ensuring sitting arrangement, selecting beneficiaries in the primary and final stage, making sure there is so corruption or recommendation in the process.

The chairman was impressed with the plan of participatory selection process and willingly started working on it. Within 7 days he completed his work with the help of the people and the committees and was highly praised.  People were impressed by his work. He not only conducted the election as it should be but also ensured the card holders get the services on time. As a result he was awarded with the “Shere-Bangla A.K Fazlul Huq Gold Medal” by the Asia Human Rights Foundation.

The chairman expressed his gratitude by saying that this has been inspiring and looks further to help the people of his union.
