Help Children in Poverty in Bangladesh
About this Mission Project
In the slum district of Jamalpur, many mothers are involved in prostitution, even if only on a casual basis. Few families have sufficient income to provide for and educate their children. In this harsh context, Symbiosis Bangladesh promotes human development with an emphasis on the poor and marginalized to help them live with dignity.
This project seeks to alleviate poverty through several sustainable initiatives. It will improve children’s health and integrate them into mainstream education. It will raise awareness of the importance of literacy. And it will provide job skills and money saving training for families.
- $50 provides materials for one preschool.
- $100 provides a latrine for eight families.
- $250 pays four field workers to run literacy groups for mothers.
- $500 supports one preschool.
Mission Project Specifics
This project seeks to raise $8,085 to help communities in Jamalpur, Bangladesh, by helping families to provide their children with a good education, promoting their health and wellbeing, offering literacy classes and providing training in micro-businesses and saving money.
This project will be managed by Symbiosis Bangladesh and will run through June 2018. It is anticipated that this project will empower the poor and result in significant behavioral changes toward the importance of education and good health.
