Naripokkho is a membership-based, women’s activist organisation working for the advancement of women’s rights and entitlements and building resistance against violence, discrimination and injustice. Since its founding in 1983, Naripokkho has met every Tuesday to discuss problems, issues and strategies related to these concerns. These discussions form the basis for Naripokkho’s programmes and activities, which include campaigns, cultural events, training, research, lobbying and advocacy, and the maintenance of a regular participatory discussion forum. Occasionally this leads to a specific project, which is carried out with grant funding. However, most of Naripokkho’s activities are voluntary and financed through resources that are earned by the membership.

Naripokkho ensures its accountability to its members through transparent and participatory processes of decision making on advocacy issues etc. Naripokkho has identified several key issues that it wishes to work on.

The implementation is via short and long term projects as well as a set of core activities which includes commemorating certain dates.
