A Bright Future for Child Labourers and Street Children in Bangladesh – Early Childhood Development Centre

HOPE'87 logo_2008

Through this project, four Early Childcare Development Centres were established in Dhaka District and one in Chittagong District. The project admitted 100 pre-primary students, aged 4 to 6 years, to the units and already 300 children were admitted for primary school-level education (6 to 12 years of age), with further admissions ongoing. Annual examinations were conducted for class one to class five.

The project has provided textbooks, conducted early childhood care classes and arranged computer training for children at night and mobile schools. Furthermore, educational materials, including pens, pencils, exercise books, school bags, toys, puzzles and uniforms as well as winter clothes were purchased and distributed among the students. To reduce the dropout rates, cooked food and regular lunchboxes are being provided to the 400 students. School fee support was provided to underprivileged students.

The project further conducted bi-monthly school management committee meetings to discuss attendance and protect children from hazardous work and monthly orientation sessions were held on children’s rights and the protection of marginalised children. In addition, psycho-social care for children in need is made available.

Within the last year, the project completed the renovation of the night school and other spaces, equipped them with new child-friendly furniture and completed the colouring and renovation of child-friendly washrooms. The project also organised various children’s events for the celebration of international and national days as well as extra-curricular activities such as swimming training, drawing competitions, an annual sports programme and tours to the Padma Bridge, Dhaka Children Park, and to Dhaka National Zoo.
