Recognizing this fact, Government has changed its policy regarding women and has acknowledged 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 is encouraging NGOs and private sectors to undertake steps for the development of women by liberalizing its policy. There are lots of NGOs are working in Bangladesh. All of them have their own agenda or work plan for implementation in the selected areas in Bangladesh. This paper is specially focused on women and related entrepreneurial activities which have been backed up by the selected sample NGOs in Bangladesh. Therefore, the study has tried to reveal the present entrepreneurial activities of selected NGOs for the development of women in Bangladesh.
