To rehabilitate the homeless and landless people of the rural area a project named "ASRAYAN " was launched by the govt in 1996. This was entirely materialized by Bangladesh Army and Bangladesh Navy. Since Bangladesh is a country of low land and it has approx 700 KM of coastline, a good number of people live in the coastal area. Bangladesh Navy took all the initiative to build low cost houses In the process of construction of low cost houses. BN uses its ships, various types of small and medium boats, mechanized country boats, trucks and many other means. The total effort of the navy personnel, local administration and the local people makes the project successful.
