The spread of COVID-19 has been an unprecedented challenge for Bangladesh as well as for the rest of the world, and it has placed enormous strain on many health systems, regardless of geography and income level. The Hunger Project Bangladesh, one of the largest volunteer-based non-government organization, has undertaken a project titled “Contribute to the COVID-19 reduction of community transmission by empowering people”. Funded by UNICEF, the objective of the project is to increase knowledge of community people with updated and consistent information regarding COVID-19 transmission as well as accelerate the desirable behaviors and practice by individuals and communities for the prevention of COVID-19.

As part of this project, a rapid assessment is being implementing by dRi in the project intervention areas. The findings from the rapid assessment will be used to benchmark the critical variables of communities for undertaking progress and to understand the factors that will provide enabling scopes of communities being engaged effectively to reduce COVID-19 transmission. In addition, the rapid assessment will help project managers to take necessary actions in empowering the communities to meet its goals. On the other hand, a final evaluation will be conducted to assess the project result and impact based on project objectives.
