THE GOVERNMENT OF BANGLADESH TO ATTAIN THESE
SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS (SDGS)

Lindsay Allan Cheyne, the Founder

He could have lived his life in his own country, New Zealand, Mr Cheyne thought differently and decided to dedicate his life to the welfare of the children of Bangladesh. He developed the project “UCEP” in 1972 aiming to provide basic education and training of working children but could not find donors for the project. But he was determined, so he initiated the project with his own savings, involving 60 working children.

M. R. Siddiqi, the first Chairperson

Mr. M. R. Siddiqi was elected as the first Chairperson of UCEP Bangladesh after the sudden demise of its founder Mr. Lindsay Allan Cheyne. He delivered his responsibilities as UCEP Bangladesh Chairperson for a little more than 2 years from May, 1988 to October 1990. It should be noted that he himself paid for the expenses of UCEP Bangladesh for the first two months.
Mr. Siddiqi was widely renowned as a politician, Member of Parliament, reputed industrialist and former ambassador and chartered accountant. In 1972, he was appointed the Minister of Commerce and Foreign Trade in the Cabinet of the Government of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh.

COVID-19 RESPONSE

Soon after the identification of the first COVID-19 case in Bangladesh in early March 2020, initiatives were taken
as immediate actions in and around all UCEP Bangladesh schools & institutes.
