In March 2008, a group of former students got together and planned to organize the first-ever grand reunion of BAF Shaheen College Dhaka. To materialize the plan, they started working to form the Alumni Association as a result, the Ex Shaheen Association of Dhaka (ESAD) was formed in 2008. However, ESAD got its formal shape and official recognition in July 2010 through registration with the Ministry of Social Welfare. ESAD is a non-profit organization that aims to foster fellowship and goodwill among its members which includes individuals who attended BAF Shaheen School/ College Dhaka from 1960 until to date. The association started with 68 members in 2010 and has grown over the last decades and reached more than 2500 members to date.
