Bangladesh has a rich boat-building heritage but the skills passed down over thousands of years are on the verge of extinction. The introduction of cheap diesel engines resulted in the motorization of river boats replacing traditional masts and sails. Steel welded sheets replaced wood as the principal raw material. Once revered for their services, carpenters, sail-makers, blacksmiths and rope-makers are no longer in demand. We strive to preserve Bangladesh’s irreplaceable boat-building heritage before it is lost forever and help to create a sustainable livelihood for the boat-builders.
