VOICE

VOICE is a rights-based, activist organization working mainly on the issues of food sovereignty, aid effectiveness, economic justice, and the right to information and communication, both in Bangladesh and on a global scale.

By building a broader constituency of alternative voices to the ‘mainstream development discourse’ through research and public education, VOICE is taking a stand against unjust and undemocratic practices. VOICE also campaigns against corporate globalization, International Financial Institutions (IFIs) and imposed conditions, trade liberalization, and the neo-liberal hegemony, and strives to lead people to action by raising critical awareness on these topics. Based in Dhaka and Mymensingh, VOICE operates a number of social justice and empowerment programs, with an emphasis on a grassroots advocacy approach and a participatory research methodology that is more people-focused.

Through networking and partnership, VOICE is working towards establishing a new macro-micro linkage, in which experience from the grassroots level is used to generate policy support at the national level that benefits the people. VOICE believes in promoting the capacity, knowledge and rights of the people, and providing a voice for the unheard.
