Target group & Objective

Target group

We commit ourselves to street children and working youths  (from the age of 15 to 21) in the slums of Dhaka. These are often youths – if not still children – responsible for an entire family, as income from one or both parents is lacking or insufficient to live off.

Objective

The objective,  is to:

  • Provide them with practical training in order to increase their employment opportunities;
  • Place them with companies that will not exploit them or let them perform hazardous work;
  • Provide them with a mentor who they can turn to for advice, when it comes to career guidance;
  • Provide health assessment and assist in medical problems;
  • Provide budget guidance and teach them to save for emergencies;
  • Help them mediate with problems at home and/or with their employers.
