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.

Save a School Campaign

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

Aside from new books, stationery, tuition assistance, uniforms and campaigns against child labour and early marriage, you will be providing teacher workshops and several facility improvements like air conditioning, water fountain, painting, playground.

Facilities will be improved with painting and decoration.
SAVE A SCHOOL (2)
Meet Mina

Can you dare to dream of becoming a teacher when you can't even go to school?

Our Save a School campaign was developed from this year's Hope Letter campaign, which stimulates global citizenship and promotes education.

Kids write letters of support to a child in another country, learning about different cultures and become aware of difficulties other people face. It happens every year in over 4,000 schools in South Korea.

This year, the campaign was launched at the London Children’s Museum in June, marking the first year kids can participate in Canada. Children are writing letters of encouragement to Mina, in Mirpur, Bangladesh. She dreams of becoming a teacher but works all day in a tobacco factory.

We want to help 200 kids in her community avoid the same path.

We have exciting silent auction items.

You will have a sneak peek soon...
