Government has recognized the fact that equal participation of women in the development activities is inevitable to ensure a balanced socio-economic growth and development in the country. Apart from this Government encouraged NGOs and private sectors to undertake steps for the development of women by liberalizing its policy. Therefore, the study has tried to unearth the present condition and activities of NGOs for the development of women in Bangladesh.
