Welfare of human being is the most desirable issue in this planet. Everybody feels it but a few percentages come forward to do something favorable for the vulnerable community forgetting the negative thinking of oppression, deprivation, dominance and humiliation. Bangladesh is a most densely populated country in this world. The southern part of Bangladesh is demarcated by the Bay of Bengal. This zone of the country is considered most remote and disadvantaged and disaster prone area. The people of this area are often become the victim of natural calamities. Environmental disaster like tornado or flash flood happens twice or more in a year. Substantial part of people of this area become helpless losing everything even their minimum shelter. Total south belt from Satkhira to Teknaf is nationally declared as disaster prone area. Pathorghata upazilla lies in the middle point of south belt. SANGRAM initiated its activities from Pathorghata upazilla aiming to change the life style of struggled people. For long 30 years SANGRAM has been struggling against natural disaster as well as poverty accompanied poor people to ensure their fundamental requirements of livelihood. By this time SANGRAM has able to change the fate of vulnerable community people in a reasonable extent. From the long track of our experience we confident that SANGRAM has gained sufficient capacity for incurring the responsibility of bringing socio economical change of grass roots level people. The people of this region are very courageous and laborious. SANGRAM thinks that courageous and laborious these two words are the capital of sustainability and self-sufficiency.
Most of the people of this locality not only the victim of natural calamities but also to victim of various social misconduct like early marriage, oppression, dowry, sexual harassments, physical and mental torture by the minority but dominated social elites. These misconducts are man created, SANGRAM thought that if the oppressed people get together, protest in a body and work together, they can easily be free from above social deprivation. To make free poor people from the ironic band of antisocial activities, SANGRAM introduced some activities like Advocacy Program for awareness build up, LEAD Program for adolescents, SVAW Program against social and familial violence, various types of training program for the poor people, activate arbitration and village court etc. As this area become the victim of frequent disaster. After disaster various contagious diseases like Cholera, Diarrhoea, Typhoid, Malaria and other water borne diseases break out the flood affected area. To meet above problems SANGRM set up Health Care Points in rural area.
SANGRAM always draws special attention to the adolescent girls. Because today’s girl is the future mother of a new nation. So she should be protected, be educated and be healthy with sound mind. Through LEAD programme adolescents have golden scope to gain sufficient knowledge of Reproductive Health Promotion, Primary Health Care, necessity of education, self-sufficiency, demerits of early marriage, social acceptability etc.
All programmes of SANGRM have been launching on behalf of sustaining the benefits of grass-roots level people and so far SANGRAM will run it will always be with the people. At last we hope and promise that SANGRAM has done for people, doing for people and will do for people.
