Our education programme in Bangladesh provides training in the basic education and social courses, largely to street children who are often forced into child labour. Help the Needy worked to bring a bout positive change, by providing basic education and nutritional food, As a result, children are now able to identify English & Bengali alphabets, and read and write their names and addresses. This project has already benefited 50 street children and Help the Needy intend to increase these numbers in the coming months.
