Make a long term difference to educating girls.
Promoting Human Rights and Education in Bangladesh (PHREB) is a not-for-profit, human rights organization, head quartered in Chittagong, Bangladesh. We create, strengthen and expand opportunities for girls and women in Bangladesh. We believe that if girls and women are given the opportunities to fully realize their potential, they will be the main solutions to poverty, maternal & neonatal mortalities, and gender based violence. PHREB works with, for and behalf of girls and women to empower them to exercise their right to sexual and reproductive health in Bangladesh.
From the early stages of their lives, Bangladeshi women are taught to be dependent on and submissive to men. They are kept ignorant of their basic human rights. This limits not only their education but their choices in terms of marriage, career aspirations, personal safety and seemingly simple things such as travelling between towns and villages or abroad.
Our core focus is to work alongside adolescent girls, and boys, under the age of 18. We feel that the majority of our efforts are best directed at young people as they are our future. We believe that if more youth are educated about their rights as human beings they will become valuable change makers in Bangladeshi society.
