Educate 100 Slum Children in Bangladesh

by Alingan Foundation

Summary

The object of this project is to help 100 slum children in Bangladesh for their education. These are primarily orphans and children growing up in slums in Dhaka, Bangladesh, who are vulnerable and under-privileged and often in dire need of education, basic medical care, food and clothing. We can't help everyone but everyone can help someone. If we can make this work, we will be nearer our aim that poverty will disappear from the world and everyone will live a standard life in equality.

Challenge

Child labor in Bangladesh is huge and that comes from the need to survive with their families. Many children live with their families, either on the streets or in slum houses. Other children live on their own because they have been orphaned or abandoned by their parents. Children also run away from their families or carers, fleeing poverty and physical abuse, and end up living and working alone on the streets.

Solution

To break the ongoing cycle of poverty of the slum dwellers we have found that the only way that we can guarantee the children a better future, is through providing a solid education. We believe that through education, slum children can grow up with the knowledge and ability to break the cycle of poverty in their whole community. We expect to ensure a better education for them and provide all related support to allow them to go to school.

Long-Term Impact

We are determined to cover 100 children under educational support and ensure the support continues until they complete their studies. After completing their studies, they will be capable of finding a better career and will be able to bring their whole family out of the slum where they can find the light of their life, live with dignity and with full protection of their basic human rights.
