Kazi Shahid Foundation
KSF was started as a dairy cooperative to support Bangladesh’s first and, so far, the only organic tea garden, Kazi and Kazi Tea Estate Ltd. KSF’s philosophy has been of a society based on sustainable and responsible livelihood and lifestyle.
KSF’s globally recognized cattle-lending program is based on an innovative approach- lending its co-op members cows instead of cash. Co-op members are lent a dairy cow that can be paid back by selling its milk and dung. KSF also facilitates organic vegetable farming, biogas and bio-fertilizer program, and pre-primary education program.
