Dak Diye Jai (DDJ), a non-government, non profitable development organization, which was established in December 10, 1982 at the village Char Baleswar of Balipara Union under Zianagar upazila of Pirojpur district. Balipara Union is located on the bank of the river Baleswar and the river Katcha flows by the eastern side of the Union. The Union is approximately 350 km off from Dhaka and nearer to Sundarbans. In early 1980, the only communication was motor launch and the major internal communication used to be the country boats. Majority of the people of the Union were the farmers, fishermen, boatmen, Bawalis and resource extractors from the Sundarbans forest. From the union the organization started its journey through implementation of awareness-building activities among the rural poor aiming to their holistic development. In November 29, 1988, a devastating cyclone hit on the southern region of Bangladesh. The people of Balipara Union faced massive devastation because of the cyclone. On this disastrous background, the organization conducted vast Relief and Rehabilitation activities with the financial assistance of Overseas Development and Administration (ODA) through Center for Development Services (CDS). Each and every Committee Members as well as Volunteers of the organization worked restlessly to implement Relief and Rehabilitation activities and made the program a great success and bring back normalcy in the life of the people.  As a result, the organization came closer to the poor people. DDJ initiated Maternal, Child Health and Family Planning project in 1989 with financial and technical support of Bangladesh Population and Health Consortium (BPHC) through Center for Development Services (CDS).  The organization successfully implemented the project in different titles and phases with the direct financial and technical support of BPHC from 1992 to 2004. As recognition of success in implementation of Maternal, Child Health and Family Planning project, Dak Diye Jai was awarded National Prize and Certificate by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare of Bangladesh government for consecutive two times in Barisal division for the years of 1989-1999 and 1999-2000. The organization started implementing Water and Sanitation project in 1990 with the financial and technical cooperation and support of NGO Forum for DWSS. The organization started implementing Rural Micro Credit program in a greater extent in 1994 with the funding support of Palli Karma-Shahayak Foundation (PKSF) for the socio-economic development of the rural poor and since then the forward journey of the organization towards socio-economic development of poor people is continuing.
