1.Good Govenance and Huaman Rights
- Movement to advance women’s right & gender equality
The unequal rights of men and women are the barrier for entire development. The torture of women and the subordination of women is the huge barrier for equity and development. ABC has been implementing this program since 1998 with the assistance of Steps towards Development through local network – XYZ Development Forum (CDF) as the member organization. This program is implemented under this program through various activities on social issues by forming gender change activists, women activists from grass-root level women, Student volunteer group from secondary level and Students facilitators group from higher secondary level and by improving their skill.

v Decreasing the rate of family torture.
v Decreasing the rate of sexual harassment in organization level.
v Increasing the presence of women in the process of decision making in politics.
b.Establishing and Protection of Rights of Vegetable Producing Farmers (EPRVPF)
Bangladesh is a agro-based country. Almost 85% people of this country are engaged with agriculture either directly or indirectly. Agriculture is the main economical sector due to the availability of cultivation worthy land, availability of labor, own local market etc. But the farmers of our country is neglected, cheated and deprived in various ways. The agriculture sector is under threat despite the availability of scope for development. The farmers are enslaved to the agriculture based local and foreign marketing companies of fertilizer, seed and pesticides. ABC is implementing this program through Action in Development (AID) with the finance of the organization, Manusher Jonno Foundation to preserve the right of the farmers, to achieve the right of the farmers, and to protect the status of the farmers.
v Establishing the Good governance in Government organization through establishing transparency.
v Ensuring economical and livelihood safety by establishing the access to Government service and technology.
c. Promoting Pro-Poor Policy Reforms and Public Services for All (2010-2012)
No program can play fruitful role for the development of the people by keeping the ordinary people out of the development process. Bangladesh government had already made principles and taken programs, and implemented the programs to reduce poverty, hunger, inequity, depriveness, unemployment and illiteracy and poverty elimination. But no program can play effective role for entire development. For this reason, there is a need of increasing public participation in development process and capacity building for the grass-root level people. In order to achieve this goal, SUPRO (Sushasoner jonno pocharavijan) has been implementing campaign program in national and grass-root level. ABC, as a coordinator of XYZ Distict committee organization, is implementing the program – “Promoting Pro-Poor Policy Reforms and Public Services for All (2010-2012)”.
Objectives-v Creating accountability on government expenditure in the public service sector and establishing economical justice through creating consciousness and skill of active social civil society on participatory budget.
v Increasing the accountability of Government for this by transforming essential service sector specially health and education sector as the basic need.
v Making awareness among the strategy maker to submerge the climate change into development program. And improving the capability of civil society so that the pressure is created on Government to cancel foreign debt.
v Strengthening the campaign program in order to disburse 0.7% fund of the GDP of the developed and rich countries.
v Involving with the international citizen movement in order to collect the fund of climate change.
v Increasing the organizational capability of SUPRO to evolve as the Pressure group from civil society.
d. Strengthening Local Governance through Participatory & Responsive Public Service Project:
It is necessary to provide autonomy and strengthen local government to ensure good governance in all cases. The local government of Bangladesh seems to be potential, but this organization is ineffective in reality despite the initiatives taken by the government to strengthen local government and effort of implementation. This is very important to make awareness in local areas by eliminating the birth time weakness of local Government and by making the government service related organization more accountable and effective. ABC is implementing this program in XYZ Sadar Upazila with this goal with the assistance of Wave Foundation and Governance Coalition and with the financial Aid of DANIDA.
The main feature of this program is to make the better quality service in local government service related organization by keeping eye on the demand of people through forming and activating the local citizen organization LoakMorcha and to make the local government more accountable and people oriented.
v Improving the quality of Government services through the improvement of knowledge and skill of Union Parishad and LoakMorcha.
v Improving the transparency, accountability, and effectiveness of the representative of local government through man to man effective contact with people, LoakMorcha, Union Parishad, local civil society and the government employees.
v Establishing connection in small and large scale. And strengthening the policy advocacy in local and national level regarding good governance locally in local areas.
e. Legal Aid Program:
The act of torture against women and children, murder, rape, dowry and divorce is happening on regular basis also in XYZ like other district of Bangladesh. The main victims of this situation are mainly women and children of distress family. Most of them can not take legal aid due to the torture, pressure in the society and family, harassment, ignorance about law, and scarcity of money. In this situation, ABC has been supporting legal aid to the women and children victims from the very beginning. The legal aid and education program was implemented with the help of Bachte Sekha, Jessore at first and BDPC later on. At present, this program is implemented through civil organization LoakMorcha with the own initiative of ABC.
v Reducing the ratio of women and children victims from the society through the assistance of legal aid and counseling.
a. Education & Self reliance Program for Development of Cowboy & Child Labor:
The illiterate population is one of the reasons of barrier against the entire development of a country. But this is unfortunate but true that the literacy rate of Bangladesh is very poor. Most of the poor, neglected day labors of villages are illiterate among them. The children of these families are engaged in various works due to the poverty from childhood. But there is no scope of education for them side by side of their work. As a result, there is a strong need of arrangement of part-time education with income generating work beside the formal and regular education in order to bring them under the net of education. Moreover there is a need of creating awareness activities widely to resist child labor and drop-out from the school with this. At present ABC is implementing this program with the assistance of Bangladesh NGO Foundation.
v Bringing the deprived, dropped-out cowboy, working children under the net of part-time education.
v Awareness building to re-admit the dropped-out children from the school.
v Creating awareness to the mass people of the region including guardians, working children, child cowboys on various issues like dropped-out from the school, children and women trafficking, early marriage prevention, child rights, birth registration, bird’s flue, HIV/AIDS, sanitation, and preservation of nature.
v Providing training to the earning children/cowboy and their guardian regarding the rearing of Black bangle goat.
v Providing partial training to buy a black bangle goat to create the opportunity for earning children/cowboy.
v Building the habit of savings among the cowboy and working children.
v Assisting the cowboys to engage in home-gardening in order to make self reliant and to meet-up the demand of nutrition. And encourage them to plantation of forest and fruit trees in order to preserve the balance of environment.
3. Health and Sanitation
a. Safe Water & Sanitation project:
It is necessary part for public health and environmental safety to ensure safe water, sanitation, care for personal health. These are the issues directly involved with the development. The situation of public health sector is still in alarming conditions due to the unequal distribution of wealth, improper guidelines and absence of planning. The conditions of healthful sanitation are still far backward from the satisfactory level from the perspective of healthful latrine coverage. XYZ district is no different than this. For this reason, ABC, with the assistance of NGO Forum, is playing a vital role for achieving the goal of sanitation coverage by establishing a village sanitation center. ABC is implementing this program to create the awareness for safe water distribution and the activities of sanitation and to help to set-up alternate technology for arsenic free safe water side by side.
v Ensuring safe water and sanitation system for rural population.
v Creating awareness regarding personal health care.
v Assisting to set-up alternate arsenic free safe water technology and cooperating for this.
b. Prevention of HIV/AIDS among young People in Bangladesh (GFATM):
It is HIV and Aids which is spread as pestilence disease that ruined the life of human beings in the world. This virus is also spreading throughout Bangladesh slowly. One third of the total population of Bangladesh is young. They have no idea regarding the infection of HIV and AIDS. As a result, this risk has been increasing day by day and this becomes the obstacle to build safe and developed life for the youth. We need to think about the risk of spreading HIV/AIDS among the youth. In order to achieve this goal, ABC has been implementing this program with the assistance of Ad Din welfare centre, Jessore.
v To provide HIV/AIDS prevention information, skills and services to the young people
v To increase coverage, quality, and comprehensiveness of interventions for vulnerable populations at highest risk of HIV/AIDS in Bangladesh.
v To collect data necessary for informing the development of national policy and programs for the prevention and control.
c. Disability & Development Project:
The matter of disability comes to a place where the difference of status between men and disabled men is huge. The status of disabled person in our country is in neglected situation not only in the society but also in the family. The disabled person in the society and family is not only the symbol of unrespectableness but also the symbol of superstitions and religious vagueness. As a result, the disabled person got the impression of the mind-set of self-distructive thoughts regarding themselves and thus looses all of their work skill. The prerequisite of the disabled person is to remove this barrier of the society and taking the measures of preventing the cause of creating disabled person anymore. At present, ABC is implementing various programs to develop the socio-economic situation of the disabled persons and their barriers with the own initiatives.
v Improving the socio-economic situation of disabled person.
v Improving the skill of disabled person.
v Creating the scope of education for disabled children
v Preventing the social barrier for the handicapped person.
d. Reconstruction and up gradation of 6 Eco-san toilets and 3 tube wells at 3 schools. 1 eco-san training and 15 class sessions for awareness and 3 advocacy meeting:
This is an important part of public health to ensure safe water, sanitation and personal health. The condition of healthful sanitation is still far backward from the satisfactory level from the perspective of healthful latrine coverage.Our children spent most of their day time in the schools side-by-side. But the sanitation facility of those schools is in worried situation. In this situation, ABC had taken the initiative to ensure safe water and hygienic toilets of 3 rural village schools through the upgradation and reconstruction with the assistance of Japan Water Forum. Moreover, an initiative had taken to ensure an important issue like health education with the guardians, teachers, and other concerned stakeholders with the scope of the project.
