ASF was formed in 1999 (Registration number: 1501) in concern to the rising trend of acid violence in Bangladesh. Acid violence is a form of gender-based violence that reflects and perpetuates the inequality of women in society. Gender- based violence is a common occurrence in Bangladesh. This form of violence cuts across cultural and religious barriers and impedes on women’s rights to fully participate in society. It has the effect of denying women basic human rights to economic & social well being, political participation, personal fulfillment and self worth.
To prevent acid and burn violence and empower survivors, especially women and children, through an integrated approach using a replicable holistic (bio-psycho-social) model; through the engagement of national and international stakeholders backed by research, experience & evidence.
ASF is a Centre of Excellence, with a vision of Bangladesh free from acid violence, where burn victims, especially women and children , live with dignity.
To ensure survivors’ satisfaction in all the activities while maintaining confidentiality and respect for the individuals.
