Reap the blessings of the last nights of Ramadan by joining our Bangladesh Street Children Crisis live appeal tonight, May 30th, on Channel S (Sky 734) from 6.00pm onwards.
In Bangladesh, 6.7 million children are out of school and 13% of children are forced to work to survive.
Transform the lives of some of the most vulnerable and forgotten children by donating to a drop-in centre in Dhaka, which supports children who are working or living on the street.
With your help tonight, we’ll be supporting 200 vulnerable children for the next year, helping them to get an education, attend classes on rights, hygiene and finance, and providing them with a safe space where they can play and participate in social and cultural activities.
We’ll also provide older children with vocational training so that they can be prepared for adulthood and employment.
We’ll also be raising funds to install a water plant in Dakkhin Sreepur in Kaliganj Upazila; currently, the nearest clean water point is eight kilometres away. By providing clean water nearby to the 2,238 residents, with the help of our partner Dhaka Ahsania Mission, we can ensure that they are drinking safe, uncontaminated water.
No child should be forced to fend for themselves. No family should have to choose between earning a living and drinking clean water.
How you can help
One to watch
If you owe Zakat, if you’ve been meaning to give Sadaqah, or if you just want to enjoy the multiplied blessings of these bountiful days, now is the time to support some of our most precious work.
These are two ambitious projects, but, with your help, we can transform the lives vulnerable young children and families struggling to access water.
