Group Description

As we read the news from home, we get sad, we get angry, we get depressed. There are few times we feel the urge to step up and to do something about it. This was one such moment when we thought why not give it a try...that's how we started Drishtipat.

Drishtipat is formed as an Internet based activist organization of the expatriate Bangladeshis for providing assistance to the victims of human rights violation in Bangladesh. The mission of Drishtipat is to be very proactive in creating a mass awareness in Bangladeshi community, causing a pressure on the authorities and to provide logistic support to help and/or rehabilitate the victims of a specific case of human rights abuse.
Drishtipat's goals are as follows:

1. Highlight specific incidents of alleged human rights abuse through its website and listserver
2. Mobilise public opinion and campaigns to protest against such human rights abuses;
3. Undertake advocacy campaigns to ensure appropriate responses from the state authorities including effective steps to prevent such abuses, or to prosecute or punish those responsible; and
4. Raise funds, if needed, for survivors of human rights abuses, for proper treatment.
