Mirpur Community

Bangladesh’s urban population is growing rapidly, as a result unemployment and lack of proper shelters is on the rise with many forced to live in slums. Our partnership with Mirpur started in 2014.

Our work focuses on ensuring access to clean water and health clinics for malnourished children as well as engaging community members on child protection education to keep children safe from child marriage and other exploitation. 

We have already achieved great things in Mirpur community in providing clean water and santiation services.

We’re working with the people of Mirpur to build a community where children thrive.

In the first five years of our partnership with Mirpur we’re working closely with leaders and regularly meeting with the community to understand their challenges and needs. Together, we have selected a few projects to start on that are the most urgent to child health and development.  

Once this work is completed, in the following 5-10 years, we will continue to develop and widen our focus to more areas of need, all the while ensuring that the community is a partner in their development journey. We plan for our partnership to continue until 2029 when we will have delivered a multitude of skills and knowledge for the community to continue their own development.
