Young Leaders Visit Bangladesh for World Mission Fund

Tuesday 14th November 2017

In August, Craig Lowe and Kalesha Mayne, BB young leaders from Kirkintilloch and Paisley returned from a two-week visit to Bangladesh to witness first-hand how global warming is affecting the South Asian country. Their visit was part of the BB / Church of Scotland World Mission Fund ‘Climate Conscious Total Village’ project.

In partnership with the Church of Bangladesh, Craig, 22 and Kalesha, 21, spent time in the Dhaka area of the country. They met farmers that also saw the wider local community being educated about the effects of climate change and how, together, challenges could be addressed.

Craig said “This trip allowed me to experience something I wouldn’t have been able to do otherwise. Also I was very interested to see how global warming is affecting countries in this region in comparison to the effects we are facing in our country.”

Climate change is a critical issue in Bangladesh, and of course a major global issue. Faith-based organisations and churches are at the heart of efforts to help those already facing the effects of global warming.”

The new World Mission project, ‘Playground for StARS’ is being launched this Autumn. To find out how your Company, Church or Battalion can get involved, please visit
