PRAN Envisions poverty free pluralist society based on knowledge and technology where everyone's basic needs, rights and information are ensured.


Traditional poverty analyses based their judgment on income and economic indicators also. A human rights analysis reveals additional concerns of the poor themselves, including the phenomena of powerlessness and social exclusion. A more through analyses yields better responses and better result. Development is people-centered, participatory and environmentally sound. It involves not just economic growth, but equitable distribution, enhancement of people's capabilities and widening of their choice. In the regard Bangladesh is facing a lack of shared communication with the grassroots people to achieve a pluralistic, self governed rational society. Consequently it should be a gender sensitive, nature friendly, right based community approach to raise the voiceless people's voice. Our progress must emerge from within our cultural identity. It must relate to people's beliefs and aspiration towards national and global justice.
