Program overview

Through our amazing partner organisation in Bangladesh, we are proud to offer this unique opportunity to work directly with some of the most underprivileged people in the slums of Dhaka. With an aim of breaking the endless cycle of poverty in the slums by paving an educational pathway for them to follow, our partner established two schools to provide primary education and basic health care to the underprivileged children of the region. Without this opportunity, attaining any type of formal education would have been impossible for these unfortunate and often destitute children. We are honoured to offer this amazing volunteering opportunity to you.

As Bangladesh is yet to become a popular tourist destination, it enjoys an un-westernised uniqueness that is often hard to find, even in other developing countries. However, this also results in little international awareness of the plights of those affected by poverty and overpopulation. Nevertheless, thanks to the initiatives of our partner in Bangladesh, volunteers are now welcomed to bring vital skills and knowledge to those who are simply born into this underprivileged life.

Volunteering in an unfamiliar land is always a challenge, and Bangladesh is certainly no different. It will challenge and inspire you, but it will be one of those times in your life when you feel most alive; one to look back on with satisfaction, resolution, and pride. Join us in helping those who need is most on these amazing programs in Bangladesh and change lives forever - both theirs and yours!
