Bethany Children’s Village

Bethany Children’s Village was established for orphans and destitute children to provide them with basic necessities such as food, shelter, and education.
The Problem

The Barisal District in southern Bangladesh is one of the country’s poorest regions where many orphans and vulnerable children struggle to survive. Young boys in particular often fall victim to child labour. They work as rickshaw pullers, day labourers, hawkers and pedlars earning barely enough to afford one meal per day.

The Program

The Bethany Children’s Village is a school that provides 150 boys with quality education and skills training so that they have the means to excel in their future endeavours. Hundreds of lives have been transformed, with many of the school’s former students going on to higher education and achieving positions of influence in their communities. 

“I would like to express my heartiest thanks to all the teachers and staff at Bethany Children’s Village for their contribution in my life. Without the help of International Needs and the support of my sponsor, I would not have been able to stand on my feet. They gave me the drive to succeed.”
