Bangladesh: Protecting Human Rights

The Protecting Human Rights (PHR) project is a five-year domestic violence prevention and protection program in Bangladesh, implemented by Plan International across the country, focusing on 102 unions and eight upazilas of six districts: Barguna, Bogra, Chittagong, Dinajpur, Jessore, and Sylhet. The project, funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), aims to reduce domestic violence and related human rights abuses in Bangladesh. To implement the program, PHR works in partnership with the Bangladesh National Woman Lawyers’ Association (BNWLA) and 11 local organizations at the district, upazila, and union levels.
