Child labor is a harsh fact of life in Bangladesh. Luckily, there are some organizations trying their best to bring smiles on these poor children even though they know that they cannot remove the curse of poverty from their lives. Volunteer for Bangladesh, an organization which has reached out to the youth and encouraged in many different ways to hold hands together and spread the smiles all around the country. In days like Universal children’s day, hundreds of volunteers gather together as one nation and encourage everyone that they should do something special for these children, the ones who are selling flowers in the streets, the ones who are working so hard that they forget what childhood is like. These volunteers replace them and sell flowers to people and encourage them to donate more funds for the children.

In this particular day no kid is unhappy, because these volunteers want them to go out and enjoy a day full of enjoyment and happiness. The good thing is, at the end of the day, the funds that are collected are used to buy clothes and food for these children. The main motive for this day is to uplift the idea of sponsoring children so they can get better education. Volunteer for Bangladesh was recently successful to build a school for these children so that, at the end of the day, they can get the proper education that they were deprived of all these years. Not only that, they get free dinner and clothes. The greatest outcome the organization has achieved is that, there is now more than a hundred families who volunteered to sponsor at least one child and provide them enough money to pay for their school supplies.

These little attempts make huge impacts in people’s lives, and so did mine. I started off volunteering for this organization but I wanted to do something on my own as well. I was able to fundraise $2500 last year, enough to provide school supplies and school uniforms to an orphanage in Dhaka. Many of my friends were excited and took a step forward to volunteer for this project. We cannot remove poverty but together we can fight it. This is what I love about the youth of Bangladesh.

Bangladesh is a third world developing country. People of Bangladesh are getting poorer as each day goes by, due to rapid growth in population. These children are being deprived of their basic necessities and becoming a liability to the economy. Hence, government should put more thoughts to get rid of this harsh situation and enforce a law against ill-treatment toward them. In fact, constructing some tuition free schools for these underprivileged children could be a step toward the betterment of the society.
