Help Mirpur change its statistics
Today, this is the reality for kids living in the slums of Mirpur*:
70% are engaged in some criminal activity.
23% are somehow involved in child labour to help their families.
42% live with a household income of $100.
20% drop out of school.
66% of girls get married before they are 18 years old.
*according to a survey conducted by Good Neighbors Bangladesh.

We aim to promote children's rights and improve the school environment for the Mirpur School.
