Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2001
This description of Moral Noor Mohammad's work was prepared when Moral Noor Mohammad was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2001.
Moral Noor Mohammad works with farmers along Bangladesh’s southwestern coast to convert their waterlogged land, which no longer sustains a rice crop, into freshwater shrimp fry farms. In keeping their land and restoring lost income, the farmers are no longer forced to migrate to the city in search of menial jobs.
