Mirpur is a slum in Dhaka, Bangladesh's capital city. The houses here are simple, and approximately 80% of people don't have access to safe drinking water. Diseases are common, putting kids at risk because their families can't afford health services. 

Sponsorship is helping to tackle three challenges facing children in Mirpur:
  1. Kids drop out of school and go to work to support their family.
  2. Dirty water makes kids sick.
  3. Malnutrition and access to health services are major issues.

Through decades of experience, we have proven that the most effective way to help a child is to strengthen their entire community, caring for every child along the way. In fact, because of these community-focused solutions, for every child you sponsor, 4 more benefit too!

“In my children’s group, we get together and have fun playing games. We have learned about our rights and how to keep ourselves safe from harm. I feel safe in my community now.”
