About SPaRC

SPaRC’s mission is ensuring women and girls’ social and political rights without prejudice of their sex, caste, religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation.
We believe “Courage is Contagious” and thus we strive boldly for an approach which highlights the problems which are pulling human kind backwards. We also strive for the quality of our work over its quantity. Our work includes promoting eradication of discrimination based on every factor, up to and including gender, sexuality and class.
SPaRC strives to add to the movements around the world which fight for a better, equitable, more just and peaceful world, a world where each and every human being- irrespective of their multiple identity (sexual, religious, economic, ethnic) enjoy equal opportunities and live in peace.

SPaRC is committed to the tenets of gender equality, sustainable development, justice, peace, and both mental and physical health. SPARC is one part of a dynamic network of women and men across the globe, with friends of SPARC including researchers, feminists, journalist, psychologists and other medical professionals, photographers, academics, students and youth leaders, environmental activists, rights activists, and lawyers who are committed to the vision and mission of SPaRC.

SPaRC was informally founded in April, 2013, in the aftermath of the Savar garments factory tragedy in Dhaka which caused the deaths of more than one thousand people (mostly women). The organisation was born out of the empathy that a network of like-minded individuals was feeling in the wake of the devastating tragedy. Following successful fundraising efforts, the group made collective efforts to mitigate the suffering and empower the mostly female victims (and their dependents) of the Savar tragedy. Subsequently, three members of the group were inspired to move forward with the creation of a more structured organisation committed to the same ideals in their home region of the Chittagong Hill Tracts, where too many women and girls are disempowered and voiceless.
