Poverty in rural areas of Bangladesh pushes many families to migrate to the capital city of Dhaka in search of work and a better future. However, on arrival the reality is very different. Often families struggle to find work. Some families are forced to eke out a living sorting items for recycling on the city's sprawling rubbish dumps.
ChildHope is working with Gram Bangla to transform the lives of the children and families at Dhaka's largest rubbish dump, Matuail. Exposed to illness and accidents the children of waste pickers are unable to access education or care. At ChildHope we know it doesn't have to be like this.[embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tk50XRg-zQg[/embed]
