Promotion of Gender Equality & Women’s Empowerment
Women is not yet empowered thought the education, awareness and earnings. Gender equality is not yet balancing or not yet reducing the inequality between men & women. Early marriage, women violence & sexual harassment are still persisting over the society. Still women are being neglected in varies aspects, so women and gender sensitivity are supplementary importance in development at present. Out of total population, 50% women are representing in our society; proper development would not be able to achieve without the women participation. Udayan has prioritized those issues and women’s empowerment is promoting in the light of gender sensitization as a crosscutting issue.

Good Governance & People Organization Development
Every Political Government is imposing more or less better policies to implement their program but they cannot ensure proper practice due to some limitations and carelessness; as a result ,the peoples are being dispossessed from their fundamental rights. Establishing good governance in every sector has been most important to ensure access to government services. Sustainable development is quite impossible without ensuring good governance at the local level. Establishing good governance in every sector has been most important to ensure access to government services. Udayan has established People Organization like Lokomorcha, Health Watch Committee, Education Watch Committee, Sufia Kamal Fellow, Form Social Entrepreneur Team, Health Services, Value Chain Group, Quality Primary Education, Protecting violence against women, Early Marriage protection, Getting good price against produces, Right to Information 2009 etc. Udayan believes that the gap between policies and their achievement can be possible to reduce by community agitation.
