Dhaka Drop-In Centre

The Dhaka Drop-In Centre empowers children and helps to facilitate alternatives to street life and/or child labour.
The Problem

Life for a street child is full of anguish and uncertainty. Many are separated from their families; others are abandoned. There are approximately 450,000 street children living in Dhaka. Root causes for children living on the streets include extreme poverty, the breakdown of the family, parental death or illness, and physical or sexual abuse. Street children are vulnerable to all forms of exploitation and abuse. 

The Program

The Dhaka Drop-In Centre is accessible for children who are unable to attend full time school. Located adjacent to the Bangladesh garment industry’s hub, the centre provides a safe and enriching environment where children receive nutritious food, basic education, social and psychological support, recreational activities, healthcare services, bathing facilities, and legal aid if necessary.

“We will continue to work out God’s call on our lives to care for the poor and most vulnerable in our communities. Thank you so much for your support of this ministry.”

Mcdonald Adhikary, Director of International Needs Bangladesh
