Introduction

NSS has been implementing different types of projects and programs in the coastal upazilas of Barguna and Patuakhali districts since its development interventions in 2000. In the last fews  years NSS has focused on addressing the needs of disadvantaged rural and urban poor people including climate vulnerable and ethnic groups. NSS believes that only through working together honestly, transparently, efficiently with maximum social commitment providing with necessary humanitarian and right based support with these back warded community will their hopes and dreams be achieved.

NSS has confined the deep rooted and far reaching women and children issues among them and or within the targeted folder. We believe that these issue needs to be unfolded immediately and responsibility should be delegated to the community so that human rights including child rights and women rights are addressed properly and adequately with the participation of all levels of stakeholders. Our approach and commitment have allowed us to understand the changing needs of our distressed people. Hence, the impact of our work is really positive and receives much recognition. However, our hunger is not satisfied–NSS can and will be developed much further.
