Dhaka Ahsania Mission, a registered non-profit, non-government, non-political, voluntary and charitable society is incorporated in Bangladesh under the Society Registration Act, 1860. The motto of the Mission is “Divine and Humanitarian Service”.

DAM has four separate but inter-connected programmes, which include Education, Livelihood, Health, and Human Rights and Social justice.
