Summary

Your donations this Ramadan will help us reach, feed, clothe and teach the most vulnerable and excluded working children doing hazardous work and domestic labour in Bangladesh. COVID-19 is driving more people in Bangladesh into extreme poverty and as a result pushing more children into the labour market, when they should be at school.

Challenge

Lack of capacity to earn a living is at the root of child labour; adult illness, the loss of a breadwinner or other catastrophe can quickly push families into poverty, forcing children into work to contribute to the household income. To solve the problem we provide education sessions to working children, we support their parents into sustainable income generation so they can afford to send their children to school instead of work and we campaign locally and nationally for an end to child labour.

Solution

Your donations will break the cycle of child labour by getting working children back into education as well as helping to address the root causes of child labour by supporting their families. This Ramadan we want to provide 400 Eid family food packs ($7 each), 400 Eid clothes for working children ($7 per child), 100 families supported ($70-$140), education materials for children (14 each), teacher's salary ($140 per month), learning centre rent ($55).

Long-Term Impact

The project will annually educate 300 children in hazardous jobs and support their progress away from child labour into school or vocational training. Every child's literacy, numeracy and life skills will improve as will their levels of health and wellbeing. We will work with the children's families to generate the support they need to rise out of poverty and provide for their household without having to send their children to work. Community advocacy will increase understanding of child rights.
