Grace is committed to the security of staff and students in Bangladesh’s changing security climate. Ultimately, Grace trusts in God’s protection. This means constantly asking for His wisdom as official advice is received. Grace implements, practises, and reviews measures to ensure the safety of the school community. This includes home, school, and travel to & fro. Security staff are present at the teachers’ accommodation 24/7 as well as on each campus. Security systems are continually assessed. Should you have any concerns regarding security don’t hesitate to ask for an on-the-ground. Painting an on-the-ground picture of what it looks like to live in Dhaka, Bangladesh is an important aspect.

“I have always found our campus to be comforting and safe. Despite restrictions that come with life in Bangladesh, staff and students really thrive in the encouraging community. Grace leadership are well connected to embassies and listen carefully to advice from the authorities. Once outside the school, life is still relatively unrestricted and safe in terms of getting around town—although it does take effort, vigilance, and grace to navigate the streets of Dhaka.”

Life in Bangladesh

What is it like to live in a large Asian mega-city?

Bangladesh is a nation like none other. Its vibrant colours, beautifully hospitable people and rich culture paired with the fast paced nature of an Asian mega-city provides many opportunities to experience life from a whole new perspective. Amongst it all, God is at work and it is experienced daily.

Bangladesh became an independent nation in 1971 after a nine-month war of independence. With a population of over 160 million people in a land area of only 55,598 square miles (144,000 square kilometres) Bangladesh is one of the most densely populated nations on earth. Since independence, Bangladeshis, as a people, have shown themselves to be resilient and determined to create a secure and successful future.
It is beautiful, from the rolling tea estates in the North to the golden beaches in the South, through gentle farmlands and into the thriving, chaotic metropolis of Dhaka where you can meet the true jewel in the crown of Bangladesh: the wonderful, humorous, welcoming Bangladeshi people.
