Pirganj is a rural community in northern Bangladesh. Most families here own land, but they cannot grow enough to feed their children. This food shortage means that only one-fifth of families eat three meals a day.

Most of the community don't have access to toilets, making children especially vulnerable to waterborne diseases like diarrhoea.

Due to extreme poverty, school dropout rates remain high. Children are either married young or forced to work to help their families.
