Increasing urban migration inflates the population living in the slum and on the streets creating a dire situation specially for the children. Children who live and work on the streets are particularly vulnerable to violence, sexual abuse, hazardous work, conflict with the law and are at risk of trafficking.Happy Home started its journey in 2006 as an initiative to take care of homeless children. Right from the beginning, it offers a safe space to roughly 150 girls aged from 7 to 18 years. The Home operates with a holistic approach in providing the girls with long-term care and support so that they can grow up becoming active citizens of the society. Happy Home not only ensures safe accommodation, food, clothes and education (both mainstream and vocational) for the girls but also medical care, self-defense training, job placement, recreational facilities including tours and field trips as well as reintegration into their community and families so that they can live their life with dignity.Happy Home is a home of love and holds a special place in the hearts of every ActionAid member. We work to ensure an environment for them to grow up in and become shining stars of tomorrow.Every year in Ramadan, we reach out to our supporters to contribute to this journey through raising funds for our Happy Home girls. The time of sharing happiness is here again. This year, for the second time, ActionAid Bangladesh is hosting a large-scale fundraising event titled “Share to Care” for the children. Along with our fundraising event, we will also be running a month-long fundraising campaign for the Happy Home children. Can you save a child from homelessness? Would you donate the fund you set aside for charity? Would you forgo the amount you spend on an expensive night out to secure a child’s education for a month? Objective of the event:-To raise funds for our Happy Home girls and build long-lasting supporter liaisons- To create a platform where Happy Home girls would be able to actively engage and become a force for change
