ActionAid Bangladesh and Its Working Approach

ActionAid Bangladesh (AAB), an affiliate member of ActionAid Federation, has been working in Bangladesh for three decades in solidarity with the poor and excluded people to end poverty and injustice. AAB’s aims at facilitating people challenging poverty and exclusion through human, practical, politically intelligent and open strategy underpinned by its Human Rights Based Approach (HRBA). AAB believes in a theory of change that requires purposeful individual and collective action, led by the people living in poverty and supported by solidarity, credible rights based alternatives and campaigns that address the structural causes and consequences of poverty. AAB mobilizes and empowers the poor and excluded to enable their collective analysis, identity, movements and actions. In solidarity with citizens, partners and supporters, AAB fosters partnerships and networks for strengthening support, voice and actions to campaign and advocate with the state and non-state actors and institutions for influencing their policies and practices that safeguard the rights of the poor and excluded people.

AAB implements Local Rights Programme (LRPs), under a long term partnership with local NGOs. The LRPs usually span for about 8-10 years or more. Every LRP is linked with the strategic objectives of AAB. However, this is not necessary that the LRPs cover all the issues stated in the strategic objectives under strategic priorities. Rather, the issues come through different processes including appraisal, strategy development and annual participatory plans and budget which take into account the context and needs of the areas and people living in poverty. AAB is currently working with 19 partners through 17 LRPs in 14 districts.
