About Us

The Promoting Human Rights and Education in Bangladesh (PHREB) is a not-for-profit, human rights organization, head quartered in Chittagong, Bangladesh. We create, strengthen and expand opportunities for girls and women in Bangladesh. We believe that if girls and women are given the opportunities to fully realize their potentials, they will be the main solutions to the poverty, maternal & neo-born mortalities and gender based violence.
