Bangladesh Nari Progati Sangha (BNPS)


Bangladesh Nari Progati Sangha (BNPS) is an activist women’s organization, working since 1986 to establish equality for women from the family to the state level. BNPS has been working at the national level for policy and legal reforms and at the community level for organizing and mobilizing grassroots people through a variety of programs.

BNPS follows a bottom-up right-based approach linking community to the national level. In the process its role is one of a catalyst and facilitator. BNPS has been trying to create an environment for women and other marginalized groups raising their voice and claiming their entitlements through a variety of activities, like awareness raising, institution building, livelihood activities and reforms of different policies, systems, institutions and mindset. The congenial working environment, culture of co-operation and teamwork, non-hierarchical management with an activist orientation is seen by all as an asset in BNPS.

So far BNPS has directly worked with around 200,000 women and over a period of two-and-a-half decades more than 800,000 people from different backgrounds have been involved in the initiatives undertaken by BNPS. BNPS is focusing on the social, economic and political empowerment of women; strengthening local government, electoral reform, education reform, and gender budget analysis. Read more ........
