In Bangladesh, 6.7 million children are out of school and 13% of children are forced to work to survive, often for up to 64 hours per week.
The Prophet (PBUH) understood the importance of childhood and he would shorten prayers for children’s comfort, and, whether they were related to him or not, he would play with them and make them laugh.
“Blessed is the wealth of the Muslim, from which he gives to the poor, the orphan and the wayfarer.” (Muslim)
Help us to support some of the most vulnerable children
Help us to support some of the most vulnerable, lonely children in the world. Support our drop-in centre in Kamalpur, Dhaka, which supports children who are working or living on the street. With your donations, 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 help the children to access healthcare, and provide older children with vocational training and job placements so that they can be prepared for adulthood and employment.
Whenever possible, and safe, we’ll be working with the children’s families to reduce the risk of them falling into danger.
