Democracywatch is an NGO working in promotion of democracy and good governance in Bangladesh since 1995. It conducts training and runs projects with a vision to build awareness on democracy and good governance. It also carries out research and opinion poll on different social and political dimensions. Democracywatch emphasizes most on education and awareness building of the young adults and women in the society. Towards this end, it runs courses on Lifestyle, Democracy Training Program, Internship Project with the Parliamentarians, IELTS, Basic Computing and English for General Purpose. Side by side, quiz, debate, dialogue session, and workshop on various issues of democracy are regularly carried out in an attempt to raise the confidence level of the youths.
Skill development training and awareness building is necessary in terms of creating employment opportunities.In this context, Bangladeshi workforces are not quite adaptable in line with the international standards.
This is why skill building training should spread allover the country. Apart from the Dhaka office, Democracywatch has a branch at Mymensingh. Regular activities are also carried out in Chittagong, Comilla, Sylhet and in some other districts in Bangladesh. Democracywatch also targets women as the core field of development in near future because we believe no development can be possible as long as the young and women are not conscious.
Democracywatch is a non government organization working to promote and strengthen democracy and good governance by creating awareness about rights and values through research, training for leadership, advocacy and mobilization of media to fight against injustice and human rights violation.
The goal of Democracywatch is to promote democratic culture and values in Bangladesh.
Promote good governance and develop leadership qualities.
