Our core focus is to work alongside adolescent girls, and boys, under the age of 18. We feel that the majority of our efforts are best directed at young people as they are our future. We believe that if more youth are educated about their rights as human beings they will become valuable change makers in Bangladeshi society.
Because our youth don't exist in a void, it is important they have the support they need to make a stand against the culture of violence and gender abuse.
Our answer to this is addressing people of influence, in particular, Imams (Muslim religious leaders), police and other law enforcement agents, as well as teachers, parents and village heads.
We rely on philanthropic support and individual donations and sponsorships to carry out our work.
We also rely on the expertise and support of other civil society organisations
working for a more equal and free society in Bangladesh.
Our Core Projects
Stop Violence Against Girls
Our Stop Violence against Girls and Women initiative works on a number of levels in the community to reduce the incidences of child marriage, eve teasing, rape, dowry related violence, domestic violence and acid throwing.
Empowering Adolescent Girls
BKAF (Bangladesh Kishori Adhikar Forum) is a fast growing alliance of girls (ages 8 - 18) committed to ending gender violence, promoting adolescent sexual and reproductive rights, equality and human rights in Bangladesh.
Imams for Women's Rights
PHREB engages Imams to end violence against women and early marriage, and promote women's human rights such as greater economic participation. Imams speak to thousands of people in mosques every week. Their support is crucial to achieving a society where women are respected and equal.
Education for Girls
Our Education for Girls initiative offers quality non-formal and formal primary education for some of the more underprivileged girls. We provide poor girls with education aid. We campaign for safe schools for girls.
Our Work with Students becomes their Home Work. We reach girls and boys through our School Campaign.
PHREB's Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights programme informs young people about puberty and reproductive rights and connects them with free health services.
