About the organisation

Oxfam’s involvement in Bangladesh began in 1970, assisting the then cyclone victims, and supporting the people of Bangladesh during the 1971 Liberation War. Oxfam was one of only three organizations honored as a Friend of the Bangladesh Liberation War in 2012.

We work with a wide range of partners that include civil society organizations, NGOs, media organizations, foreign and local universities, private sector companies, along with different levels of government.

Gender and Women’s Leadership:

We mainstream gender in all our work. We influence to reduce gender-based violence and discrimination. We empower women and girls by ensuring transformative leadership and equal participation in society. We uphold sexual and reproductive rights. We do this, so that women and girls in Bangladesh will be able to enjoy the freedom to make meaningful decisions. We work with different networks and alliances at both local and national levels. We engage with public and private sectors in creating spaces for women and girls to have their own voice, make their own choices and take control of living their own lives.
