There are a good numbers of development field experts engaged in developing thematic programming and piloting in Bangladesh as a field of developing "Theory of Change" mainly through "Awakening Bangladesh" in rural areas for future advocacy. We believe that indicators of social and economic empowerment of the parents specially the mothers would be the “key factory” to uphold the rights of the children. On the other hand, the empowered children would be the change agents of creating self protection from all discrimination. This process would generate the inner enforcement in the society to stop abusing children, committing violence against the weaker fellows, and child marriage. When child marriage will no more exist in any locality/community, the drop out among the girls from schools will be reduced dramatically. Economically empowered families will be more sustainable in the area of food security, access to health service, enrolment and completion in the primary education cycle and other rights issues.
Component-1 Ethical & Organic Farming, “Jagoron”, organic and conventional crops growers’ cooperative is initiated, formed and developed by its participating members themselves through “Self-Help Group” in around hundred acres of land for cultivation in a participatory way.
Component-2 Early Childhood Education (ECE), we are operating Early Childhood Development Centers in the “Jagooron” communities, where the children under five have been enjoying the rights related to development. On the other hand, we do operate the evening tuition sessions for the primary school children and the adolescents for improving subject base knowledge. On the other hand, our education experts are solely involved in piloting the Models to introduce the concept of quality education, and to develop innovative ones.
Component-3 with the participation of adolescents in the “Jogoron” communities, there is a change initiative to create a social mobilization that would be leaded by the of “child marriage age group” to stop child and force marriage by involving all the duty bearers and the associates.
Component-4 Coming to the “Self-Help Groups” the mothers of the “Jagoron” communities start producing ethical products as they got skilled here, we promote them and they earn to support their children for food, nutrition, health and education. The production lines are food yield, recycle and up cycle apparels and accessories, jute diversified products.
Coponent-5 to improve the food security level, there are many initiatives with farmers and the women in “Jagoron” communities. The children also have the stake to consent to the planning and the decision to make by the adults regarding alternative selection of crops, intake, reserve and sale. There is a modern marketing chain to establish in short future when they achieve the Fair Trade Certification.
It is our mission to make a better global community in terms of human and child rights especially for our next generation through contributing to the community level
In recent time we start moving with ethnic minority in northern part of Bangladesh, the farmers, whom we facilitate to led the organic cultivation, sere-culture, the spouse to produce ethical and organic jute made products and recycle clothing and home apparels and up cycle ones too. The children aged 3+ to 5+ will be bring to 'Early Childhood Development' program and the and children above 5 years under tuition (Bangla,mathematics and English as a second language) adolescent 12+ aged life and rights base skills. They will be brought into a peer group and trained up on social issues, such as the Child marriage, as we know Bangladesh is ranking in the top in percentage (64%) of childbearing. This girls will emerged as the change maker after few years and we hope then there no child marriage will exist in the catchment area. Plan conducted a study in Bangladesh, Pakistan and India, and we see in the report, where they conclude, the social and economical empowerment can eradicate the child marriage. Thanks for bothering me in this long paragraph.
