Inclusive Bangladesh joins CSBR!
– | No Comment

“At Inclusive Bangladesh, we envision to create an inclusive Bangladeshi society where every citizen will be a resource for safe-guarding each-other’s human rights and peaceful living. Our work and effort circulate in promoting gender equality, religious literacy, global citizenship, diversity and equality.”

Inclusive Bangladesh joined CSBR in October 2020. Inclusive Bangladesh is a non-registered, local non-profit and volunteer-based community youth organization from Dhaka, Bangladesh. Established in 2013, Inclusive Bangladesh is now working with diverse local and international organizations, multilateral and multi-layered development partners and active youth change makers. Its mission is to construct an inclusive culture through ensuring quality education, addressing hate speech and violent extremism, promoting interfaith dialogue and gender diversity with the active participation of youths across Bangladesh.

As part of CSBR’s One Day One Struggle campaign in 2020, Inclusive Bangladesh organized a month-long campaign to raise awareness on the rights of intersex people in Bangladesh. Check out their zine, which captures experiences and struggles through visual arts and literary pieces: https://bit.ly/IntersexZineBangla
