Bangladesh: In the cities, many people live in densely populated slums. They sleep in huts or out on the street. Rural migrants flee abject poverty in the countryside in the hope of finding a better life in urban areas. Families and communities often are separated, leaving an increasing number of children to grow up alone and in poverty. In the capital Dhaka alone an estimated 190,000 children between the ages of five and 14 live on the streets. Our partner organisation, the Dhaka Ahsania Mission, gives street children food, accommodation and an opportunity to get an education. Please support our project with a donation!
The Dhaka Ahsania Mission is one of the largest aid organisations in Bangladesh. Founded in 1958, the Mission works in a wide range of areas such as health, education, poverty reduction, climate protection, clean drinking water, agriculture and HIV prevention.
Our project helps 100 street children, boys and girls, between the ages of six and eight including:
In the newly established Ahsania Mission Children City (AMCC) children receive holistic care that revolves around accommodation, education and support measures.
The children should grow up in a secure environment, get enough to eat and receive healthcare. At the same time, they should have an opportunity to improve their academic performances and develop their talents. The project seeks to positively influence the children’s attitudes, values and behaviour. Furthermore, the Dhaka Ahsania Mission Children City works hand-in-hand with state and non-governmental organisations and networks to champion children's rights.
