Job Description

Life in Bangladesh

Bangladesh is a nation like no other. Its vibrant colours, hospitable people, rich culture, and fast-paced nature provides many opportunities to experience life from a whole new perspective.

Amongst it all, God is at work, and it is experienced daily. The countryside is beautiful—the rolling tea estates in the North and the golden beaches in the South. There are gentle farmlands and the thriving, chaotic metropolis of Dhaka. The best part of Bangladesh is the wonderful, humorous, welcoming Bangladeshi people.

What Our Staff are Saying

I like the core values of Grace- which helps my personal life, spiritual life and in my professional life. I also have freedom in my work which I enjoy.

Mr. R

Corporate Affairs Manager

One of the main reasons I stayed at Grace is because I feel that I can be who God made me to be and share what God is doing in my own heart.

Grace has become my family. I know these kids, and I love them.”

Ms. R

Secondary Teacher

My transition to Dhaka was relatively easy because Grace makes sure everything we need has been prepared. This was important to me because I need to be very organised. 

I love my colleagues because we have the same faith and vision. Grace is an amazing community.”
