Bangladesh

A country of rich Indo-European heritage, Bangladesh is located between India and Burma and borders the Bay of Bengal. Although only the size of Wisconsin, Bangladesh is one of the world’s most densely populated countries and also has one of the largest Muslim populations in the world. Due to economic necessity, many extended families share the same dwelling and a big emphasis is placed on the value of family relationships and hospitality. In a country where agriculture employs the majority of the labor force, only one in every five children get a secondary education, and only 3% proceed on to several years of University.
