Maria Cristina Foundation

Helping underprivileged children in the slums of Dhaka, Bangladesh break the cycle of poverty through education.
Educating the slums
 
The Maria Cristina Foundation has been working in the Gawair slum community in Bangladesh for 11 years. We have educated hundreds of underprivileged children and their parents. We have broken long-standing negative social norms, which allow children as young as 12 to get married and turn a blind eye to child labour. With quality education, even the most unfortunate can fulfil their potential, dream big and break the cycle of poverty.
