Association of Voluntary Actions for Society

Aim of the organisation

AVAS is a non-government, non-profit, humanitarian and rights based voluntary organization that was solely founded in 1998 to provide a range of services to poor, distressed & deprived people. We also provide services to women and children who are socially excluded in urban and rural areas of Barisal division.

Organisation activities

Through its programs and projects AVAS provides rights-based services to people through a holistic approach. AVAS’s work with women and children complies with the United Nations Child Rights Convention; Human rights Declaration & CEDAW. AVAS recognizes that people especially women and children are the holders of their own rights. And because these rights are invested in the peoples’ own person, the people are no longer a passive recipient of charity but an empowered actor in their own development. The organization emphasizes the need to respect people’s evolving/developing capacities.
