Have a happy joyous Eid!


Dear friends and VAB Canada family:
There are many destitute children, parents and families are going to miss this Eid festival, especially in the war conflicted zone across the world.
Let’s sit for a while and think quietly and send our good wishes for those helpless/victims through loving- kindness practice.
On behalf of VAB Canada, with a heavy heart I wish you all a blissful Eid.
Warm regards,
Pamelia Khaled
Founder-President Volunteers Association for Bangladesh Canada (VABC)

A brief biography


Pamelia Khaled Founder-President of Volunteers Association for Bangladesh Canada

Pamelia Khaled is a Doctoral Candidate at the Ontario Institute of Studies in Education, at the University of Toronto (Canada), with wide-ranging experience in the field of education and development. In addition to a master’s degree in Environmental Studies from York University in Canada, she holds research-based master’s degrees in Anthropology and Sociology from Bangladesh.

Her doctoral research aims to explore the curricula of religious and secular education systems and the sociology-political processes that shape the current Bangladesh secondary education system. She also aims to identify key weaknesses in these systems in terms of quality and equity, and to examine the obstacles to overcoming such weaknesses. She has a keen research interest in Bangladesh’s social issue including urban poor, gender, education and women’s employment. Pamelia Khaled has a deep concern in multicultural approaches for Bangladesh and for other multicultural societies, such as those in other Asian countries and in Canada. As a means to support under-privileged children in Bangladesh and community development in Toronto, she initiated the “Volunteers Association for Bangladesh” Chapter in Toronto, Canada. This non-profit organization provides social, educational and financial support to rural children and youths in Bangladesh

Stop Genocide in Gaza

Message from VAB Canada:

Stop genocide, support for Gaza

 On behalf of Volunteers Association for Bangladesh Canada, President Pamelia Khaled plead to International leaders and UN to stop Gaza massacre. She urges to raise a collective voice to hear authority, leader of Israel.  The leader of Israel and international community must  get back to  senses and start working for the sake of humanity, thinking “Gaza’s innocent people”.

Israil- 2



Why VAB Canada is mourning genocide in Gaza?  We are mourning watching genocide in Gaza because we experienced genocide four decades ago; more than 3 millions innocents were killed in March, 1971 in Bangladesh by Pakistan army. VAB Canada is not taking any sides Israel or Gaza. We are mourning  for all victims who are largely innocent children and civilians. Israel has broken the law of war and also international law and targeted children and civilians in Gaza. VAB Canada stands with the people of Gaza thinking Genocide 1971; death numbers might have turned out differently if America and its allies would stand with Bangladesh in 1971.

We all  hope the removal of siege on Gaza soon and Israel would come back to sense to starts dialogue for Peace.
