Nari Uddug Kendra
NUK has also been supported by Women Win to conduct an extensive research project, interviewing stakeholders across sectors on the status of sport for girls in Bangladesh. As a result, it has successfully influenced the government to approve gender training for all female leadership and decision-making positions in the 64 district offices, and women's wings are being started in each sports federation, an element notably absent in the past.
Women Win sees NUK as a valuable partner in its learning about effective advocacy approaches on local and national levels and in increasing the number of sports for women's rights programs. Additionally, their experience with gender-based violence is being tapped for guideline development. Founder Mashuda Khatun Shefali has been an ASHOKA fellow since 1992. The International Working Group on Women and Sport (IWG) has been a co-partner with Women Win since 2008 in supporting the work of NUK.
