Many children in Bangladesh toil as laborers under conditions that threaten their health and safety. Some children are forced to beg or to pick through trash, looking for food, clothing, and castoff items to sell. Others are sexually exploited. Nearly 1.7 million children ages 5 to 17 in Bangladesh are engaged in illegal child labor.
World Vision’s Child Protection Project in Bangladesh aims to remove children from exploitative and hazardous work and keep those at risk from engaging in such work. One of our key objectives is to increase access to education for children who are vulnerable to or already engaged in labor.
Less than 30 percent of people who live in rural areas of Mozambique have access to safe water, and only 4 percent have improved sanitation facilities. World Vision is working to change this.
The world for Syrian children and their families turned upside down when fighting started in their country in 2011. The number of refugees and displaced people has grown into one of the worst humanitarian crises in history. World Vision is providing emergency aid and interventions so the children of Syria can dream of a better future.
