What We Do

Our student agency is “Get Up Speak Up”. It being reminiscent of the songs and movements the youth have grown up with. The youth in Dhaka are not given a safe space for them to speak on many of the issues they have already formed opinions on. Through this we are calling the youth to action, to speak out about their experiences of being of both majority and non-majority religious backgrounds, and be rid of the underlying prejudices. Thus, through this message, we are prioritizing their voice while trying to enthuse the youth.

Get Up Speak Up is focused on creating space where voices from different religious communities can come together and share their personal experiences, through this, we hope to impact through shifts in thinking about the relevance of their own voice through encouraging them to talk and implement social change.
