Eunuch Rights and Rehabilitation:

(Advocacy for the rights of the eunuchs and their rehabilitation)

Eunuchs or the hermaphrodites are group of people because of their gender confusion; these people live a life of the out caste. They were being deprived of the normal rights of an ordinary citizen in the country as a result of which, the rate of literacy is least among the eunuchs. They are discriminated in using public transports; do not get access to public transports community services and Medicare services easy. They are being scorned as bringer of ill women. PEO found that eunuchs are a category of people who perfectly fit the definition of Hard core poor as has been created by big NGOs in Bangladesh. The eunuchs are a by passed community living on the fringe of the society. There is no reliable survey as to the number of eunuchs in the country. However, it is assumed that a large number of people are there who are living a pitiable existence because of this freak of nature. In the absence of state protection and recognition of their rights, many of the eunuchs get trapped by various vice gangs ( cross country ) and compel them to commit various crimes. PEO can claim that, it is the only first organization which has focused on the poverty, vulnerability and discrimination issue of the eunuchs first in Bangladesh.
The eunuch has been born into the society by their parents. They did not come from sky or waive or water or dug who bringing all human components in body and only they have not sexual well tools due to misshape of X/Y chromosome. They don’t have familial equal rights, social dignity, political- religious priority, medical special care and living below the standards of livelihood. To remove their hunger they depend on begging, acts like sex worker. To mitigate sex charm does anal sex, oral sex and homo sex whatever prohibited religiously and by the government. If such type of case arises into the court, certainly they will have to get jail.
During the last 12 years it had arranged seminars on their rights issues. Currently PEO had given training to the eunuchs with leadership potential. These trained persons are in turn motivating and sensitizing other eunuchs for holding of a Grand National conference in near future to promote their rights.
Sharing meeting with local civil society members: PEO had arranged several meetings with the local civil society members comprising of imams, teachers, govt. officials, drivers, singer, dancer, laborer etc.
The PEO written poetry and focused at the newspaper & Facebook also to aware the intellectual and display song through its singer group to aware much people. So, day by day cordiality is growing up to society about the eunuch community.
The PEO could focus such this issues and the Government of Bangladesh has taken a program for them and rendering some activities also. It is one of the PEO’s achievements.
The PEO works for:

  • 1.Attaining citizen rights of the eunuch and lady boy

  • 2.Education & Skill of eunuch to employment and empowerment

  • 3.Medical facility for health of the eunuch & to get priority as they are sexual disable
