Working With Children in Bangladesh

Coronavirus (COVID-19) impact on World Vision operations

In support of public health recommendations outlined by the World Health Organization, some sponsorship program activities have been temporarily suspended due to COVID-19. Activities may include sponsor queries and correspondence, sponsor visits, gift notifications and gift deliveries. These temporary suspensions may affect the information you receive from us in the coming weeks and months. Learn more about our response to COVID-19.
Even as the national economy grows at an impressive rate, many children in Bangladesh are being left behind. Almost two in five Bangladeshi children under age five are stunted, a condition that can affect a child’s life-long ability to develop and learn. Also critical is gender inequality, with women’s wages as low as a dollar a day and 66 per cent of adolescent girls in early marriages.

World Vision Bangladesh currently benefits about 5 million people. Our work is focused on improving health and nutrition of mothers and children, providing more children with access to quality education, ensuring children are protected and cared for, and increasing community resilience to natural and economic shocks.
