Bangladesh Group Empowerment Program

This sponsorship program ensures that every student has a place in a classroom with dedicated teachers, books, and effective learning tools.
The Problem

Poverty is widespread throughout the Naogoan and Jessore region. Many children live in slum settlements and are forced to work, often in hazardous, low-wage jobs, to help support themselves and their families. When children are forced into these situations, they become vulnerable to human trafficking, exploitation, and abuse. With little support for these children and their families, poverty and injustice are often reinforced for generations.

The Program

The Bangladesh Group Empowerment Program ensures that groups of children in Naogoan and Jessore are empowered to attend school from kindergarten through secondary school. Students receive education, meals, health care, as well as social and vocational skills, such as sewing and computer training. This method of sponsorship gives children at-risk of exploitation the opportunity to go to school and prevents any children from falling through the cracks.

How Your Gift Helps!
