New Book Will Help Fund Project for Street Children in Bangladesh



International Needs advocate, Donna Michalek, has written a new book entitled, “Street Boy”, highlighting the needs of street children in Bangladesh. The book will help fund the building of a residence at the Naogoan Free School to accommodate fifty street children, giving them a home and the opportunity to go to school. Donna was in Bangladesh in February 2017 and shared,

“When we visited the Drop-in Centre for Street Children in Dhaka, I found it very hard to see children coming in from their work. A seven year old boy looked so tired… I later learned that he had been working long hours in a steel factory cutting rebar by hand with a saw. Little girls also worked long hours as housemaids, doing laundry and cleaning houses from morning until evening. I thought of our children who go to school and have lots of opportunities to play, but these children have so little. They sleep in factories, under kitchen tables, or on the streets.”

Donna’s latest book, “Street Boy”, sells for $20. All proceeds will go toward building a residence for these children at the Naogoan Free School, and give them the right to learn and play.
