CommunityAction is a student-run registered social service organization (reg# 10268). Since its inception, the activists, called Actioneers, have attracted widespread attention through their unique slogan:
‘Even a Smile is Charity’
On Dec 16, 2008, the first small group of Actioneers decided to celebrate Victory Day with a group of children teaching them about this region’s long fight for independence. Since then, we have been running a huge number of activities. Those activities have impact on well over 100,000 underprivileged Bangladeshis. Our activist teams constitute of more than 600 students from approximately 90 institutes across the world.
CommunityAction(CA) is a very philosophy-driven organisation! Our,
CA has a mantra,
Actioneers > Actions
CA focuses more on Actioneers than its actions. Through their various social service actions and training workshops, Actioneers seek to train themselves to be moral, influential and professional. CommunityAction hopes to make each Actioneer an asset for Bangladesh and the whole world.
If CA is able to create a generation of moral and responsible citizens who are trained to care for the society, it will not be a matter where our Actioneers end up –be it here or abroad, in the media or as homemakers– they’ll still be serving society to the best of their capacities.

We focus on training Actioneers.
We concentrate on actions with long term impact.

We are able to think outside the box
Come, smile with us! :)
