Message from BAP President

Dear members of the Bangladesh Association of Phoenix,

I am honored to be the President of such a wonderful organization that was founded approximately 35 years ago by some visionary immigrants from Bangladesh. Our primary objective is to foster a robust and vibrant community for Bangladeshi Americans in the Arizona area. We firmly believe that a united Bangladeshi community is pivotal for growth and strength. We are proud to be a bridge for the settled and newly arrived Bangladeshis in Arizona, maintaining a strong bond with our beloved Bangladesh.

Our organization offers a wide range of services to the Bangladeshi community in Arizona, including sports, humanitarian, educational, business promotion, national holiday observation, cultural enrichment through theater, talent hunt, victim assistance, passport/visa services from the Bangladesh Embassy, and other important services made available throughout the year. We are committed to creating a comfortable and educational environment that helps teach the new generation of Bangladeshi Americans in Arizona about the love for Bangladesh and its culture, language, history, and heritage.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our members for their continued support and dedication to our organization. Together, we can continue to build a resilient and vibrant community for Bangladeshi Americans in Arizona.
