Wazipur, Bangladesh is a district located in the Southern region of Bangladesh, about 114km away from Dhaka. The majority of the population are limited to labour-intensive and low-income occupations such as farmers, daily labourers or petty traders. As the district is also prone to earthquakes, water-logging and arsenic poisoning, economic livelihood opportunities are further restricted. The prevalence of child labour and child marriage also contribute to high drop-out rates in school - limiting the opportunities for future growth and development.

Key Challenges: 
1. A lack of stable economic opportunities hinder the growth and development of families and the community 
2. High levels of disregard on the value of education and drop-out rates
3. Limited access to nutrition knowledge and quality healthcare
Programme Goal: 

To sustain the well-being of children within their families and communities in targeted communes through the improvement in household incomes and the social environment.
