Child Sponsorship

BanglaKids provides education to disadvantaged children in Bangladesh

BanglaKids is a long-term development children sponsorship program of ADRA Czech Republic. We provide education to children and young people from resource-poor families in Bangladesh and strive to improve their living conditions. Thus we help to alleviate poverty and suffering.  

Thanks to you, our donors, we have provided education to more than 7,200 Bangladeshi children. With your help, we are paving a path to a better future. 

At BanglaKids, we mostly focus on education. However, we also provide children and their families with food support and medical care, renovate school facilities, and improve access to safe water. You can learn more about these projects here

Our long-term goal is to support schools and local communities so that they can become more self-sufficient and less dependent on external support.  

What is our motivation?

We like children and we believe that education is one of the most efficient means of poverty alleviation that opens new opportunities for young people. Through education, they can get a better paid job, develop themselves and help their entire families. 

More than 40 % of people in Bangladesh live on less than 1.25 USD per day, which is below the poverty line declared by the UN. Just a little over half of all adults can read and write. Cheap labor with low and unstable income is often the only option for illiterate people. Poverty becomes their fate, handed down from one generation to another. By providing education to children we try to change this situation. 

How can you get involved?

Look up information abou children who do not yet receive support on our website. Choose the child (or children) you would like to support and become their sponsor. Through regular donations to ADRA, you will provide children with the opportunity to study at village or boarding schools. Our team will take care of the administration and everything else necessary.
