WHY DO YOU NEED US AT SCHOOL
Kotha is a feminist youth led organisation based in Dhaka, Bangladesh tackling the root causes of gender based violence. We work at the intersection of education, youth-perspective research, policy advocacy and arts.Through our primary intervention programs, we aim to mobilize young people to change societal mindsets and dismantle the culture of gender based violence in Bangladesh.
Founded in 2016 by Umama Zillur, a graduate of Mount Holyoke College, Kotha was developed under the Clinton Global Initiative and awarded with the Social Innovation Fund by Mount Holyoke College.
HOW IT WORKS
Through education and skill development, Kotha wants to begin a cultural shift in high schools by fostering healthy conversations, encouraging respect amongst peers while equipping students with crucial life skills.
