Knowing Shomman

Shomman, a registered NGO (No.3217), has been actively involved in promoting the rights of helping hands working in and around our houses, indigenous and people with special need. It takes action and provides testimony in order to meet their basic needs, and promote respect for their dignity and basic rights. According to our research and survey, at least 15 million people countrywide are helping hands, at this moment, representing approximately 10 % of our population. These individuals are aged mainly 13 and above, more than 95% of whom are women. A huge number of child domestic workers were found to work in the Dhaka City Corporation area, according to an ILO-UNICEF Baseline Survey.

Shomman has been also working on the health status and basic education of these vulnerable groups. It has been seen that a plethora of diseases (like Covid-19,TB, Water borne diseases, Psychological illnesses etc) are spreading inside our apartments without anybody knowing. And these occurrences have been happening in a repetitive manner. Shomman has been trying to address this health malaise.
