Bangladesh: a month of nursery
Every year 400,000 people arrive from rural areas to Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. Most of these people are very poor women looking for work opportunities in the textile industry.
In order to work, they often leave their pre-school children alone during the day. Childcare facilities are therefore essential. That is why Caritas Luxembourg supports the establishment of day-care centres for the children of textile workers, from birth to 5 years old.
Day care centres for young children
To date, 10 crèches for 200 children have been set up, with the participation of the local community. Qualified and trained early childhood education staff - recruited from the local community - accompany and support the babies and young children in their daily activities. In this way, the educators provide the children with security and a safe and stable foundation for all development and learning.
With this gift, a child in Bangladesh will be able to attend the nursery for a month.
