In Nilphamari Sadar, most families make their living from agriculture; however, low harvests mean there isn't enough food for families to eat and sell. Schools lack resources, and many children drop out of school to find work to support their families, or to be married.

Sponsorship is helping to tackle three challenges facing children:
  1. Students struggle to learn and many end up dropping out of school.
  2. Kids are malnourished as families struggle to feed them three meals a day.
  3. Child labour and early marriage still affect many kids.

Partnering together for a sustainable future.

By sponsoring children in Nilphamari Sadar community, you are making an incredible difference in vulnerable children’s lives.

Your support is helping Nilphamari Sadar community by improving the physical, emotional, spiritual and social well-being of the most vulnerable children.

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!

Together, we are tackling the hard problems, such as changing mindsets and behaviours to address the root causes of poverty. We're focusing on building skills, hope and opportunity for the children of Nilphamari Sadar community.

The Sundarbans region of West Bengal

Did you know vegetation in Bangladesh varies depending on location?

Bangladesh has four different areas of vegetation. Cultivated plants and orchards are found in the flat plains of the western regions.

The eastern zone has many low hills covered with jungles of bamboo and rattan (a species of climbing palm). The most common plant is a large type of bamboo that forms the basis of the country’s paper industry. 

The central zone contains many lakes and supports swampy vegetation; the soil of part of this zone produces the Madhupur jungles. 

The southern zone along the Bay of Bengal contains the vast wetlands of the Sundarbans, located within the largest mangrove forest in the world.
