The DAWC "Yellow Pages" is an exclusive publication of the Dhaka American Women’s Club. What began as a humble "Member’s Directory" fifteen years ago has evolved into a handy telephone directory and indispensable resource for the expatriate and greater Bangladeshi community. It contains a broad range of businesses, medical providers, government and non-governmental organizations as well as emergency numbers, city area ('thana') maps and other useful information.
Many of the businesses and organizations featured in the directory are known to or suggested by the expatriate community; most of these are located primarily within Gulshan, Baridhara, Banani and Dhanmondi but include other areas and some outside-of-Dhaka locations as well.
The DAWC "Yellow Pages" is a fund-raiser for the charities arm of DAWC. Proceeds from directory sales support Bangladeshi charities that work with literacy/education, health, vocational, rehabilitation and other worthy programs. For a current list of charities supported by DAWC, please contact us.
The directory is published every two years and underwritten by sponsors in the business community.
