Build Hope in the City: Homeless in Bangladesh

In Dhaka – one of Asia’s biggest cities – homeless people face huge challenges every day. They often live in dangerous conditions with few ways of escaping poverty.

But through our 12 pavement dweller centres spread around the city, Concern is helping families live with dignity and work towards their dreams.

The centres offer education, work skills training and information about legal rights. Users can get a grant to launch their own business and begin climbing out of poverty.

There’s healthcare, and support to make sure people get the nutritious diet they need – particularly children and pregnant women.

Here are three ways our centres have made a difference Graphic promoting Concern's work with homeless people in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
