Alam and Slum Children’s Education
Son of a night-guard, daughter of a street vegetable seller, daughter of an abandoned mother who survives by cleaning in other people’s houses. These are some of the children whom we sponsor at Alam’s school in Mirpur in Dhaka. These families live in the shacks thrown up alongside the polluted drainage canal, still with rents to pay. Alam runs a school for approximately 50 local children among whom are those whom we sponsor. Education for these slum dwelling children brings hope for the future.
