  2. 2. 3. Short project summary NAZIR (Natun Zibon Rochi) has extensive experiences of implementing human rights and other related projects in the Northern regions of Bangladesh. The impetus for implementing the proposed project named " Empowerment of women through access of Human Rights " came into being from the confidence of successfully accomplishment of similar programs for protecting women rights and their empowerment both in the Lalmonirhat district (Northern parts) of the country. The project aims at mobilizing and sensitizing cross section stakeholders for creating an enabling environment and promoting a sustainable social safety net mechanism against occurrence of women rights abuses and with particular focus on the disadvantaged and marginal women. Essentially the project intends to widen the scope of civil societies, NGOs, women Union Parishad (UP) representatives, women activists and grassroots people to influence the social power structure and rights holders to fulfill their obligations to protect and promote the realizations of women rights. It will do so by strengthening the collaborations of those cross section human rights actors at the local level. From the viewpoint project will employ multipronged strategies to institute the structure and mechanisms that will allow the rights actors to work collectively for protecting range of violation of women rights, particularly violence against women and other systemic denial the their rights. Upazila Justice Facilitation Committee for women and Union watch group Groups will be formed to monitor and protect women rights through advocacy and people mobilization. These groups will also employ range of techniques for women rights advocacy to foster responsiveness and hold public officers accountable for fulfilling the rights. The progressive realization of women rights requires resources and strategic planning for medium and long-term action. Before commencing the intervention for promoting improved women rights project will undertake and participatory needs-assessment of the women rights situation in the targeted upazila so as to identify priority women rights problems of the locality. Emphasis will be given on awareness building of the whole range of stakeholders including civil societies, grassroots women, local leaders, local govt. representatives about the rights of women. Besides, project will also train the respective groups to claim rights and protect violence against women. Project will facilitate advocacy actions and lobbing with local government and public offices to ensure justice for the victims of violence. In Bangladesh women are lagging behind the men in all spheres of life. Rural, urban and slum women are victims of early marriage, divorce, mental, physical torture and worst kind of violence. Over the last two decades, violence against women has increasingly become one of the most visible and articulated social issues in Bangladesh to exploit women to the full advantage of men. It is high time to take up programs to control the increasing trend of violence, not only for the interest of women, but more importantly for the total development of the nation. “Violence against women is a deeply entrenched problem in most societies because attitudes and practices that support violence are institutionalized in custom and law at all levels of society – marriage and the family, home, community and state”The Project Goal is : To reduce poverty, social vulnerability , Stop violence against women and establish human rights. We expected that the project is to contribute to the promotion of human rights by the violence at households, community, local and educational institution level reduced and the women and girls living at the working areas enjoyed the justice and live free from any form of violence. Project Duration is in 12 Months.

Project background NAZIR (Natun Zibon Rochi) has been identified through its long involvement in implementing various projects in the area of human rights, women empowerment, local governance, education, health, institution-building and the rate of infringement or women rights and various forms of violence against them are much higher in the remote areas like char (sand bar) of the Lalmonirhat district than any other part of the country. With its long presence in the border areas, NAZIR has also experienced that women in these areas and also the most vulnerable section in all forms of poverty and deprivation. They are traditionally the victims of dowry, trafficking, child marriages, unlawful divorce and domestic violence's. As shown in the recent human rights situation review in the border belt area under a human rights project of NAZIR that women in the border areas are traditionally the victims of various oppressions. By and large, women reported most ominous existence of dowry, unlawful divorce, early marriage and physical torture etc. in the area. During focus group discussion, women disclosed their untold saga over the oppression on them by their husbands and in-laws. The human rights situation review has been carried out based on completely the opinions of the people in border belt areas. The findings were the numeric protrayal of the respondents opinion. Majority of the respondents termed dowry as the most serious oppression against them in their area. Besides child marriage and unlawful divorce has been reported as the second and third major oppression respectively against them. Even in many cases the occurrence of child marriage remains underreported. There are many instances of the women becoming the victims of 'Fatwa' and salishi are reported from the region. Violation of the basic rights at the workplace in form of less or little wages for 8
  9. 9. women is also a deep-rooted problem in the area. Due to geographical distance and inaccessibility, the access of the victims to the mainstream legal system has always been a difficult if not impossible proposition. Though there are a number of legal aid organizations available in the country, often they have limited or little access to these remote border areas towards ensuring some support to the victims. NAZIR (Natun Zibon Rochi) strongly believes that without facilitating the victim's access to justice and social protection, such incidences of violence and injustices will further be on the increase in the coming days. NAZIR also realizes that if the women are excluded from the nation-building activities, the overall development process would be uneven and even counter-productive. With such an organizational belief and with the backdrop of its experiences of implementing other projects on human rights and women empowerment, the NAZIR (Natun Zibon Rochi) is keen to undertake interventions in the aforesaid areas. The proposed project intends to address the issue of violence against women, which is compatible to the thematic areas of (human rights) European Commission. Considering the remote and inaccessible locations of the proposed project interventions, the project would represent and effort towards redressing the sufferings of one of the most disadvantaged and vulnerable segment of population. In the same vein, the strengthening and mobilizing the local government institutions, civil societies and other stakeholders towards promoting women rights will also assist in contributing to related broader objectives of the sponsoring organization Violence Against Women (VAW)has become a critical concern now a days in the developing countries specially in Bangladesh. As women are the main victims of their rights, they are frequently claiming the economic, social and political rights. They are the most deprived portion in the society and family as well. VAW is also an area in Bangladesh that need to be addressed yet for it’s development as without participation of the women in any area can not be developed. Here the practice is that the society exclude the women from the autonomous role in private and public life. However, among the total population women are propotionately 50% percent. The women are suffering from some forms of violences. Whereas , the women and girl are most vulnerable due to exploitation such as sexual, physical, economic and psychological and this kind of violence reinforced by the society, culture, religion as well as state policies and laws. As the half of the population are women, we must involve them and enable them to contribute for the development of the society and country bringing them in the the mainstream of development. Recognizing violence against women as a violation of Human Rights is a significant turning-point in the struggle to end violence against women globally (UNIFEM, 2003). A human rights perspective broadens the definition of violence against women and “focuses attention on discrimination and inequalities that are maintained or tolerated by the state and that increase women`s vulnerability to violence” (Johnson et al., 2008, p. 4) Violence against women has been recognised as an Human Rights issue since the 1993 World Conference on Human Rights in Vienna, which established that “human rights of women and of the girl-child are an inalienable, integral and indivisible part of universal human rights” (VDPA, Part I, para. 18). In the target area almost 100% poor and hardcore poor women are affected to domestic violence in their lives. Most of them do not know about protective measures to avoid early marriage, dowry, divorce, sexual abuse, physical assault and mental torture by husbands and guardians in families. Most of them do not know about marriage registration, Child birth registration, family ordinance laws and laws related to prevention of violence and discrimination against women. Most of them do not know function of union councils and Police in protection of their human right’s. To effectively reduce violence, it is necessary to transform and reorganize government and facilitate real community participation. We need to weave a new social fabric, robust enough to withstand the stresses of rapid change in a newborn society. To expect this to happen too quickly is to sabotage proper planning and solid construction of new criminal justice machinery. The following violence they are facing on regular basis: - Domestic violence by the husband and her mother in law or sister - Forceful Rape - Torture and repression due to dowry and polygamy - The adolescents are facing eve teasing when the go out - Violence by community people or other slum dwellers. - Violence at workplace - Acid throwing - The most common form of violence is physical assaults and followed by sexual assault and harassment. - The psychological or mental violence either separately or inclusively with other forms of violence is high but the victims are not aware about such violence. - Lack sensitization and responsive among the civil society representative, government and local government Most fundamentally this strategy requires that government moves beyond a mode of crisis management and reaction. Government must ensure that effective planning and sustainable success in reducing violence will reach well into the next century. In addition, greater attention must be given to prevent and protection for violence against to the factors that currently occurred :Women and Child Violence, Youth violence, Child abuse and neglect by parents and other caregivers, 9
  10. 10. Violence by intimate partners, Abuse of the elderly, Sexual violence, Self-directed violence, Collective violence, Murder and Suicide, Wife Battering, Marital Rape, Early and Forced Marriage, Dowry-related Violence, Acid Throwing, Rape and other forms of Sexual Violence, Prostitution and Trafficking in Girls Violence against women is difficult to quantify because of unreliable statistics, but recent reports indicated that domestic violence is widespread. A report released by the U.N. Population Fund in September asserted that 47 percent of adult women report physical abuse by their male partner. The Government, the media, and women’s rights organizations have fostered a growing awareness of the problem of violence against women. Much of the violence against women is related to disputes over dowries. According to a human rights group, there were dowry-related killings during the year. Human rights groups and press reports indicate that incidents of vigilantism against women–sometimes led by religious leaders–at times occur, particularly in rural areas. These include humiliating, painful punishments, such as the whipping of women accused of moral offences’. Assailants who fling acid in their faces disfigured numerous women. One human rights organization reported that 181 women suffered acid attacks during the year. The most common motivation for acid-throwing attacks against women is revenge by a rejected suitor; land disputes are another leading cause of the acid attacks. Few perpetrators of the acid attacks are prosecuted. Often the perpetrator flings the acid in through an open window during the night, making cases difficult to prove. However, enforcement of these laws is weak, especially in rural areas, and the Government seldom prosecutes those cases that are filed. PRA with beneficiary participants were held at the areas .Focus Group Discussions (FGD) were held with stakeholders in these areas to have their participation in the assessment of situation, problems and needs. The Project aim to engage the social actors in protecting the violence Against Women: The project would like to engage with and influence the stated social actors through adopting and employing different process. The process of their involvement and engagement are as follows: • The project will establish strong rapport and relation with social actors mentioned above and involvement them in the project implementation process and take necessary support from them. The project will make the local government, community leaders and civil society responsive through raising awareness among them and sensitize toward to violence against women and girls. In community based activities like mediation generally rights of the poor are denied and become the victim of violence. The project will invite the local government official to participate in the meeting and ensure justice for the poor and hard core poor women and girls. • The project will arrange different meeting and sharing session and ensure their involvement • Again, at the community level there will have community group or committee to ensure their united involvement in violence protection. The project will involve the local government, civil society representatives and community leaders to make them supportive and responsive. Project Location will be Lalmonirhat Sadar Upozilla of Lalmonirhat District in Bangladesh 12. Beneficiaries of the project The project will exclusively serve women, children, ethnic and religious minorities and marginalised communities and disadvantaged rural poor women living in poor areas and of this area including those living in social isolation due to disability, age and floating livelihood status. Majority of the beneficiaries are day-labourers and vendors who depend on day-to-day income. Half of the beneficiary users are expected to be women. Children, adolescent boys and girls are also included. The project is expected to serve 1000 Women, 1000 girls and 1000 Children beneficiaries as direct beneficiaries of the project and indirect beneficiaries will be 20000. All direct and indirect beneficiaries will be benefited from the project. Union Parishad, upazila parishad, government services providers, persons related to judiciary function, advocate, media persons, NGOs, police personnel’s, kazi and religious leaders, etc have involve for development and implement the project. All stakeholders will be involved in this project for the purpose of increasing access to accountable and speedy dispute resolution, legal services and policy advocacy that protect the rights of women, children, ethnic and religious minorities and marginalised communities. Positive changes in this area have lead to victims of violence receiving medical treatment, police assistance, legal support and psychosocial rehabilitation and has taken multiple steps to ensure that the human rights of women are respected, protected and fulfilled. Governmental structures have been gradually adopted through legislative reform to ensure the inclusion of violence against women on the agendas. Criteria and Area of Target People : Target populations of the projects are economically poor and socially depressed people. we considers those people as target group who fulfill the following criteria : ; Who owns less than an acre of cultivable land. ; ; ; ; ; Who do not have moderate income ( such as –salary, remittance, business, etc.) Many are women (member of resource-poor households or women headed households and children Who consume less than the required 2,250 kcal per day, suffer from malnourishment and high child and maternal mortality rates, and have limited or no access to social, government, and depend nongovernment services Aged between 15 and 45 years.

Besides these discussions meeting were held with cross sectional people of the community such as teachers, leaders, UP members, business persons, religious leaders, government officials to have their participation in situation analysis and needs assessment. All the expressed problems situation and needs are compiled into a long list and from which common problems, situations and needs are recorded into lessons learnt part of the plan. Four special Focus Group Discussions (FGD) were conducted with 60 participants (15 participants at each FGD) who were not direct beneficiaries of the program but important members of the community at the project area. A reasonable numbers of the targeted beneficiaries were discussed personally and in groups in non formal sessions before designing this project.They will be involved actively during implementation period of this project so that the beneficiaries play active role throughout this project. 13. Gender aspect of the project Our Programs and Projects will be based on clear understanding on gender relations, roles and identities. We wants to make positive changes in the livelihood of the poor, work with men and should be given to empowering women. It will be only a dream for us to empower the poor if we fail to give women’s issues priority. Based on these W e has drawn up a gender policy to fulfill its mission of total Development. A women’s working group will be formed to assist women who have been seriously harassed. At least two female staff directly coordinate with the Executive Director. They will be involved also in special discussion to be held with male staff on how thy can best assist and support women without causing insult. 100% will be women/ female will be directly benefited through this project while the males will benefit indirectly. Women’s freedom & open movement is very much restricted. Dowry, Early, marriage, Divorces, polygamy. Are common issues in the community. Girls children are deprived of Education, health care & also income opportunities . poorest of the poor women work as helping hand on low wage in the road work & in the field of agriculture. Family planning the women are not follower in regularly. Women & community people are largely unwise of HIV / AIDS, STD and others sexual disease. Disable person are negleted. Women’s freedom of choice and movement are not allowed. Pordah is not in common practices, dowry, early marriage, divorce, polygamy, abandoned by husband and husband fleeing away are common. Girl children are deprived of education, health care and income opportunities. Extreme poor women work as helping hand on low wage in agriculture work, paddy husking work and domestic work. Family Planning is not widely practiced because lack of health worker and contraceptive supply. Gender policy of the organisation has copy attached 14. Vulnerable groups The project takes active involvement into account, the vulnerable groups (e.g. indigenous people, people with disabilities, sexual and gender minorities, disadvantage women. The different vulnerable groups are involved in project planning and will remain responsible for implementation. Focus Group Discussions (FGD) were held with stakeholders in the project areas to have their participation in the assessment of situation, problems and needs. The vulnerable groups lives in hard-to-reach areas are also extremely disadvantaged in terms of accessibilities. The economic opportunities are less due to physical environment and the poor people of these areas are the most vulnerable. Poverty and vulnerability are very high among the population. Moreover in some cases the administrative barrier and governance problem regarding human rights limits their livelihood options. Again, there are also the absence of awareness options that make provision of human right even more challenging in the vulnerable areas. Keeping its commitments to the MDG targets, the Government of Bangladesh has taken several policy and strategic decisions to promote Human rights through out the country. Responding to the sector needs and priorities the government has formulated and adopted a number of policy & strategies, establised institutional framework and service delivery mechanism to satisfy the cliental groups as much as possible. As a result, Bangladesh has achieved the highest Human rights coverage among the South-Asian countries along with tremendous reduced. But the overall observation shows that still a lot of gaps between policy and practices for the promotion of human rights services, especially in different vulnerable agro -ecological zones, prevailing that is demanding effective initiatives on way to reach the national goal of ‘Human rights ensured. 11

It is estimated that around 20000 most vulnerable women will be supported out of the project. The beneficiary list will be submitted to donor. 16.5 Formation of Upazila Justice Facilitation Committee (JFC) for Women: Project will organize a sustainable social safety-net mechanism named Justice Facilitation Committee for each Upazila to facilitate legal support and increasing women access to justice to protect dowry, unlawful divorce and child marriage or any kind of violence that take place against the women. The JFC at upazila level will be comprised of union level watch group groups on violence against women and the leaders of grassroots level women groups. Each JFC will include a Justice Focal Point essentially a law practitioner at district court. The focal point will be primarily responsible for facilitating linkage to women victims in the upazila with legal service providing institutions including police station, district court, family court etc and take require initiatives to have access to service. Project will train the focal point on monitoring the service providing institutions for law and justice. It is worth mentioning that the project will have provision for providing financial support to file case in favour of the victim women. While providing follow uup support of a particular case, the focal point will also monitor the responsiveness of service providing institutions from village court to district court and report back to the JFC. Based on the report by the focal point and representatives of Union Watch Group Committee, the JFC will decide on required legal support for the victims. Special focus will be given on the victimized women who are deprived of access to justice by reason of their poverty, lack of social connection, illiteracy and ignorance. The primary roles and responsibilities of the committee will be to explore ways and means to assist the women victims that will include. ; ; Arranging legal support, assist the victims to take advantage of family court, and make liaison with legal support providers in the locality and Sharing information and forging linkage with or mobilizing other supporting forces in the community in favour of the victims. 16.6 Formation of Watch Groups at Union Level: The Union level Watch group Committee will be represented by women UP members, gram sarker members, local elite, lawyers, teachers, doctors, journalists, religious leaders, representatives of the business community or occupational groups and professionals.
