A National Level Research to Explore Fear of Violence among Girls and Young Women in Bangladesh

Plan is an international and nongovernmental organisation which has been working over 75 countries for more than 80 years to advance children’s rights and equality for girls. Plan International has been operating in Bangladesh since 1994, helping children access their rights to health, education, economic security and protection. Very recently, Plan has launched its country strategy V (CS 2030), which has set a new vision for the organization. The vision is: We will partner to empower girls and young women, to be heard, to live without fear of violence and to achieve their rights. The vision has been drawn from a consultative workshop with the adolescents, youth and the staff members of Plan International Bangladesh. In the workshop the fear and experience of violence, whether physical or verbal revealed as a significant barrier for the adolescent girls and young women to reach to their full potential. In the CS2030 the organisation will work to address fear of violence to remove the barriers and help the adolescent girls and young women to reach their full potential. Given the situation, Plan International Bangladesh has planned to conduct a national level research to understand the overall situation of fear of violence among the adolescent girls and young women and their parents which prevent them to continue education, take part in collective actions, engage in income generating activities and move freely in public places. A consultant/consulting firm will be contracted out on behalf of Plan International Bangladesh to carry out this research as per this Terms of Reference (TOR).
