About the organisation

The social system was and continues to be deadly for a lot of people living in the Indian subcontinent. So many people living in of Bangladesh have been victims of this cruel system. Discrimination and oppression are still going on against them and they have great difficulties in having access to local resources. They are still marginalized from the greater society and are extremely poor, illiterate, landless, rights less’, underdeveloped and frustrated. Their life is still full of agony and distress. The national policy makers have constantly overlooked their situation and even NGOs have not come up with a plan for these groups of people.

At 1980-1990 Some dalit young men and women belonging to these backward groups living in the South Western coastal region of Satkhira, Khulna and Jessore have been able to get a certain degree of education. They have also been able to get aware of their own people’s miserable situation and have understood that trying to change and improve it is now their duty and responsibility.
In 1993 a group of dalit student by born a “Dalit Students Association”, The new name was called ‘Parittran’. The meaning of this Bengali word is ‘Liberation or Salvation.’ Parittran is a movement, for the Dalits and by the dalits. PARITTRAN, a non-government organization, is the first dalit social action group in Bangladesh working for the empowerment of Dalit communities. PARITTRAN, promote towards strengthening the Dalit Movement, through increasing their voices, capacities, realization of their fundamental rights and demand-driven institutional responsiveness. Parittran believes in equal rights of all human beings and therefore, is working for upholding the dignity of socially excluded people. Parittran is dedicated to mainstreaming gender in its operation in terms of participation, capacity and programmatic focus. Parittran is committed towards building a strong line of leadership for the dalit movement and human rights.
Parittran is dedicated to building the capacities of our people through progress reviews and Education support, Mass awareness campaign, Developed IEC Materials, Developed video documentary film on the dalits life and show, Evidence based lobby and advocacy Meeting, Fact findings on the HR violence of dalits, Media campaign workshops that are conducted periodically. Additionally the aim is to build skills through accounts, legal aid and Dalit women leadership workshops as well as cluster level meetings.

Such as; Govt. has amended a dalit development policy, 80% quota in cleaning job for sweeper community and declaration for special quota for other dalits unemployed youth. 1.0% reservation in Dhaka University for admit in higher education for dalits student, National human right commission, civil society ogranization and Law commission under taken initiative to drafting anti discriminatory law.
