Save the Children Bangladesh
Working children in Bangladesh are denied access to basic services such as education, health, nutrition and other child development services, which subsequently lead to inter-generational transfer of poverty. Further, prevalence of high levels of violence, abuse and exploitation of children severely affects children’s freedom and limits their capacity to access basic services as well as to be grown as active and productive citizen.
This book shares some of the inspiring stories learned from the field during the implementation of the Save the Children project titled “Strengthening Non-State Actors (NSA) and Local Bodies (LBs) to reduce child poverty and promote rights of vulnerable children” supported by the European Commission. This project was implemented from April 2010 to July 2013 and was a part of the Working Children Programme of the Child Protection Sector of Save the Children in Bangladesh.
The overall objective of the programme is to build the capacities of NSAs and LBs to achieve sustainable reduction in child poverty, child labour and child rights violations, thereby achieving the applicable Millennium Development Goals.
