Bangladesh is one of the world’s most densely populated countries, with its people crammed into a delta of rivers that empties into the Bay of Bengal. The low-lying country is vulnerable to flooding and cyclones and it stands to be badly affected by predicted rises in sea levels. Bangladesh ranked as one of the most corrupted countries in the world. The major employer is agriculture, but it is unable to meet the demand for jobs. Thus many Bangladeshis seek work abroad, sometimes illegally.
Besides the children ministry, we also support local partners to implement integrated community development project in slums and disaster risk reduction project, enhancing the ability of local communities to combat with poverty.
