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!
An estimated 380,000 Bangladeshi children between the ages of five and 14 live on the streets with tendency to rise, more than half of them in Dhaka. This development is fuelled by poverty, abuse and families that are torn apart. The health of these children is at risk. They are malnourished and exposed to abuse and the hazards of sexually transmitted diseases. They survive on the streets by pickpocketing, begging, selling drugs and working in sweatshops. They earn money as porters and street hawkers, clean shoes and collect rubbish. Many children and young people become victims of child trafficking and child prostitution.
The children are robbed of many of their rights, such as the right to an appropriate standard of living, education, recreation, playing and relaxation. To make matters worse, they are exposed to drugs, abuse and exploitation.
We Will Help Them to Study And Food And try to help the to live a proper life that we are leading They have full rights to have a safe healthy and happy life too rather than stay on street begging or being in orphanage or start working as children labor.
