Adhunika is a nonprofit charitable organization under section 501(c)(3) of the US Internal Revenue Code. It is a global, volunteer based organization dedicated to promoting technology usage for Bangladeshi women worldwide, in order to bring about positive social change in their lives, thus contributing to the advancement of gender equality in Bangladesh and the empowerment of Bangladeshi women. Adhunika was founded in March 2002 in New York, USA.
The inception of the Skype session workshops, which enables volunteers -friends of Adhunika from Adhunika Foundation- to engage in dialogue involving a multitudinal set of topics with students at Adhunika Women’s Center in Dhaka, took place in the latter part of 2013. The sessions materialized as a result of the desire to interconnect volunteers in the U.S. and participants in Bangladesh. While the initial goal, as requested by the students, was to strengthen their English speaking skills by encouraging them to converse using the language, it has morphed into addressing crucial social issues such as women’s rights to analyzing literature written by 19th century European authors.
