Introduction / History
Not much is known about history or origins of the Dhawa people in Bangladesh.

Where are they located?
Their small number is located primarily in the area of Bogra in northeast Bangladesh.

What are their lives like?
They are a dwindling indigenous group of landless people. Their lands have been confiscated by the government, and they are left with nothing. Many indigenous people groups in Bangladesh are leaving their original homelands.

What are their beliefs?
Dhawa people in Bangladesh are 100% Islamic.

What are their needs?
Their greatest need is to understand that the one true God loves them and has provided payment of the penalty for all of their sins.

They need quality of life instructions and practical helps to survive with their families.

Prayer Points
* Pray that the Holy Spirit will give the Dhawa people a spiritual hunger that will lead them to Christ.
* Pray that the Lord will thrust out workers to the Dhawa people in Bangladesh.
* Pray for workers to go to Dhawa leaders as His ambassadors.
* Pray for a church planting movement to thrive among the Dhawa people.
