Most people live in the big cities. In and among the crowds, many children are exploited.
Starting at a young age, they work to help their families or they are sexually exploited and sold like goods.
Many girls are forced to marry. It frees their families from having to provide for them, which saves money. These girls are often abused.
Terre des Hommes Netherlands in Bangladesh fight against child exploitation in Bangladesh
Our office in Dhaka is managed by Mahmudul Kabir. With his lead, we are able to protect and assist thousands of children, calling their situation to the attention of police, lawyers and judges and helping them to claim for their rights.
November 1st, 2020 marks Kabir's 40 years of dedication in protecting and supporting the most vulnerable children in the country.
Help us support him to further continue supporting hundreds of children in Bangladesh.
