Mithapukur community is in an underprivileged area 240 km north of Dhaka, Bangladesh's capital city. Here many indigenous people suffer from illiteracy, poor health and low-income. 

Most families in Mithapukur depend on agriculture as their livelihood source. They don't have access to clean water or washrooms in their homes; making the whole community vulnerable to diseases. Classrooms lack necessary facilities, so school attendance is low. 

Your support is making a life-changing impact for children in Mithapukur.


295 malnourished children gained weight after their parents and caregivers learned about proper nutrition.


650 students attend school regularly now that their parents have a regular source of livelihood.


900 community members learned the harmful effects of cultural practices like child marriage, helping to protect youth.


8,214 children learned about their rights and how to identify and report suspected cases of abuse.


Partnering together for a sustainable future.
