Badabon Sangho is a women's rights and women-led organisation in southwest region

Presence in: Bangladesh
Focus: Environmental Justice, Gender-based violence, Land & Natural Resources, Women's Rights

The organisation was formed with the passion and experiences we had during our journey to do something for them. Badabon Sangho is a women’s rights and local woman-led organisation, has started its journey in 2016 in the southern region of Bangladesh called Rampal and Mongla which is also next to the Bay of Bengal. We work with issues of girls and women specially land rights and land induced gender based violence against women, climate change and disaster and its impact on girls and women, fisherfolks women and migrant workers’ rights and others.

We keep focus on feminist approach and movement building engaging women are facing the worst forms of violence regarding disaster, land disputes and become displaced which keeps them silent to ask for their rights. We also work with lower caste, dalit, women with disability, trans women, fisher folk, crab farmers and indigenous minorities in these areas. Recently Badabon Sangho is working with the returnee migrant workers who actually lost their job overseas after covid-19 and are coming back to Bangladesh.

Being a founder member of Badabon Sangho, we are assisting local communities who are affected by public and private land investment and climate change. Thermal power plant is the key public investment and surrounding the plant about 109 private corporates are investment on land and displacing occupational and homestead of local peoples. I am working as senior development manager, key responsibilities includes programme development, learning documentation and implementation, etc. Particularly I'm managing the land rights programme with assistance of field team. Side by side, I am helping team to implement and document learning and challenges in order to feed into the further programming. We the team is based at local level. We the team born and brought up in the communities. The training will assist us in two ways, firstly, my personal capacity would be improved in field activities ultimately assisted local communities and landowners who are affected by the investment. Secondly, improved skill will help to cascade within my other team members - ultimately transferred to the organisational level.
