Youth Dementia Activists

YDA is an outreach volunteer program designed to encourage the youth of Bangladesh to support the cause of dementia and do their part in promoting dementia awareness. Our aim is to embrace the journey of activism in order to change attitudes towards dementia in Bangladesh and build knowledge and skills in dementia care.

Create and Enhance Comprehensive Early Dementia Diagnosis

A major project to raise awareness of dementia through Youth Dementia Activists will be the Foundation’s another milestone. I pray for all the young talents globally who are willing to participate our volunteers programme and contributing their precious time for the humanity. 

“Dementia is a hidden timebomb not just in Bangladesh but across the world.”
