The government estimates that of the roughly 3.4 million children working in Bangladesh, nearly 1.3 million are involved in some form of hazardous labor. Our partners are working to change this – and to improve the lives of thousands of children and youth.
With a special focus on the slum regions of Dhaka, these community-based organizations are providing young people in challenging contexts with new opportunities – like education, vocational training, mentoring, life-coaching, meals, and shelter – to break the cycle of hazardous labor and exploitation. They’re helping children leave and recover from dangerous situations, and they’re working to prevent those situations in the first place.
GFC provides its local partners with flexible funding and capacity development services, helping them to strengthen their internal systems and processes and ultimately become stronger agents for change.
