Mention Bangladesh and many of us think of an impoverished land filled with volunteers. According to Hyder, who first came to Fukuoka seven years ago as an exchange student, the first part is true, but it was in Fukuoka where he first experienced volunteerism. As a foreign student he received lots of assistance from friendly Fukuokans. In April 2005 with the support of Japanese friends, he established “KETOY.JP”, an NPO dedicated to helping small villages in Bangladesh develop through fair trade.
