As a non-govt. and non-profit Voluntary development organization, PARIBARTAN was founded in 1988 with a view to bring change about the overall condition of rural poor particularly neglected womenfolk. It comes 1991 when her field operation had been launched effectively at grassroot level. We usually work among disadvantaged women, youth and girls along with disabled people, Adibashi minority and Acid burnt assault victims and a few other unprivileged & vulnerable sections of the society following small group as well as community approaches both based on the strategy of integrated development. Being registered under the dept. of social services as well as Bureau of NGO Affairs, further it has a nice collaboration to a number of networking and apex bodies in the country and also a few in overseas. There is also an executive committee as it’s guiding policy-making instrument. In addition, a skilled and experience staff led by the Director is dedicatedly engaged to run the organization’s program in a good order. The organization has so far implemented a number of various types of development projects both small and medium size with support from home and abroad including govt. assistance on which we have proven track records and evidences. The initiator and founder of the organization is a former professional social worker and rural Journalist, writer- poet and also an Ex-UNV/DDS and it maintains collaborations with UN NGLS-Geneva and UNIC – Dhaka by means of receiving their regular publications and other materials. The organization keeps  its all documents up to date including annual activity and financial reports

Title Significance:

Bengali word “PARIBARTAN” means – ‘Change’ that we believe and very often use in the sense of positive term and as we know actual development is translated into reality only when it has changed anything toward the trend of increasing growth up to expected level ensuring quality and quantity both at a time. Nothing would be everlasting except Change according to eternal saying. Moreover, as it was George Bernard Shaw who once said “Progress is impossible without change; and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything”. That is the philosophical notion in keeping such a name of the organization in bringing changes about all poor conditions. But after all, we should first change ourselves and then try to make the changes of others or anything that is the main motto.
