Shetu Inc. is a volunteer based non-profit organization. Shetu’s mission is to empower South Asian immigrant communities with a particular focus on the Bangladeshi population to fully achieve their civic and socio-economic potential in New York by building bridges across cultures, languages, and generations. Shetu was founded in 2007 with the mission of assisting the low-income, Bangladeshi immigrant populations to facilitate an easier acculturation into mainstream society in America. Shetu, meaning “bridge” in English, deemed a better fit with our mission to work for the underserved, immigrant communities in the US by bridging the socio-cultural gap and promoting civic participation. Shetu carries out its work in several ways to provide various programs for its targeted community.
