The project OXFAM Bangladesh

The project OXFAM Bangladesh

It was completed in 2013 successfully with dignity. It was a small charity program of one-day duration. 

Our activity was distributing warm clothes among 100 gender-diverse people in the local area of  Dhaka city. 

That was so amazing and helpful for the minority people to support them that we are here for them any time.

  2. There was an art exhibition by the minority people.

Our second goal with ACTION AID  

  1. A drama was played out in the direction of Rafiqul Islam Tutul on the theme of women having to suffer in our cities. 

** the drama theme was like a thundering slap on the face of social norms. 

  1. The drama was acted by SNS member. 

The phobia of mainstream people about gender diverse people  

  1. There was a meeting & an open conversation session over the topic & the way out.
Interactive theater

Interactive theater

The interactive drama show was performed by Somporker Noya Setu in partnership with ActionAid Bangladesh on 28th October 2004. SNS performed an interactive theatre drama show for the national launch of the safe cities for women campaign. For this initiative, ActionAid Bangladesh provided technical and financial support to organize and materialize the drama show.

The objective of that drama show was,

  1. To perform and build awareness of the difficulties faced by women as they face sexual harassment in the public places of the city due to the lack of enabling factors such as gender-responsive public services, social security, etc.
  2. To create awareness and accountability amongst the audience on the issues of gender equity and safe cities for women through interactive and participatory method theatre.

The major responsibilities of Somporker Noya Setu in this theatre were-

  1. Writing and finalization of the script based on the feedback of AAB
  2. Organizing all actors and logistics and ensuring proper rehearsals
  3. Performing a dress rehearsal before the final performance
  4. Arranging all the logistics for performers including make-up, costumes, and a vehicle for the day of that performance
  5. Delivering the drama show on the day of the launch.
