Country Overview

Bangladesh is one of the most densely populated countries in the world. It is bordered by India and Myanmar, and is dominated by the fertile Bengal Delta. 

Bangladesh’s geographic location makes it vulnerable to frequent natural disasters such as floods, cyclones, and earthquakes. Poverty is also widespread throughout the country, and millions of children are forced into work, marriage, or trafficking to help support themselves and their families.
