About BanglaKids

Logo BanglaKidsThe BanglaKids Program is a long-term development project focusing on continuous support and improvement in the lives of underprivileged children in Bangladesh through education. Since 1999, in cooperative partnership with the local organization, BCSS (Bangladesh Children Sponsorship Services) and with the support of donors from the Czech and Slovak Republics, Germany, and the United States, ADRA CZ has provided education to nearly 6,500 children whose parents or guardians cannot afford to pay the fees and expenses associated with their children’s schooling.

The BanglaKids Program allows for the direct sponsorship of individual children and orphan-children at village or boarding schools and helps to support the education for children living the in  poverty-stricken slum areas of the capital city of Dhaka. Long-term support of these children gives them a chance to improve their current living conditions as well as future possibilities.

Giving these children a chance for education means giving them a chance to be children again…


Although the BanglaKids Program places an essential priority on education, it also provides food and medical assistance to students and their families, enables reconstruction projects on school premises and improves clean drinking water sources at supported schools. Since the launch of the program in 1999, 42 village schools have been repaired and supplied with necessary school equipment, 5 village schools in remote parts of Bangladesh were provided electricity by using solar energy, and 1 village school was newly built. Additionally, to secure safe drinking water for children, wells were dug or repaired for 9 village schools and a new water plant was put in place for 1 boarding school. Furthermore, around 100 teachers from village and boarding schools participate in extended summer teacher training each year.

The long-term objective of the BanglaKids Program is to support schools and local communities so that they become more self-sufficient and less dependent on external help.
