Unnayan Shamannay (US) is a home-grown Bangladeshi non-profit and non-governmental research organization. However, its operational space is more than research; its building capacity, doing policy advocacy, assist networking and facilitate cultural learning. The members of Unnayan Shamannay have been striving to invigorate and further strengthen private sector initiatives for socioeconomic and cultural development of Bangladesh through a concerted grassroots approach. It is an innovative non-profit research organization of resourceful professionals working in the arena of research and development. It is engaged in quantitative and qualitative research work, training, communication and advocacy, cultural learning and developmental activities. Unnayan Shamannay was conceived in the light of a felt need for an alternative socio-cultural trend, a trend that encompasses the struggle for survival thriving on the creative talent of the people. This trend does not seek to depict the country as poverty-ridden. Rather it seeks to uphold the country as a free and resilient entity, demonstrating creativity and innovation that is inherent in its rich cultural legacy. It attempts to delve into this ingenious force, establish a linkage of the well-endowed heritage to the present and understand the future trend of development in a finer context.
