Imagine being pulled out of school to marry and go live with a stranger at the age of 12, because no one knew or cared about your rights.
Imagine being given no say about financial matters at home or political issues in your local community, because no one felt your opinion mattered.
Imagine being treated as a second-class citizen your whole life because of your gender, religion or disability.
This is the sad reality for many people in Bangladesh, but you can help us do something about it.
BECOME A MEMBER
For 100 DKK a year (amounting to 8.33 DKK a month), you can help permanently change lives in rural Bangladesh by:
- Fighting social injustice and gender inequality
- Providing crucial education to women and other marginalised groups
- Empowering women and other marginalised groups to organise and make their voices heard
- Putting an end to the outdated and illegal practice of child marriage in rural communities
You do this by helping fund the formation of a so-called Gono Kendra, or people's centre.
Once a Gono Kendra has been set up, the members (primarily women, but also other discriminated/socially vulnerable groups such as Christians, Hindus or disabled people) pool their resources together to sustain the group, institute savings programmes, learn about their rights and vocational skills and organise at the community level to ensure their voices are finally heard.
Each Gono Kendra is completely self-sustaining once it has been set up, meaning your donation never goes to the same person or group twice. It's about giving people the basic opportunities they need to finally break the cycle of poverty and permanently change their lives - and their children's lives - in the process.
Bandhab is a 100% volunteer-driven organisation, meaning that 100% of your donation goes towards funding our work with our local partners in Bangladesh.
