Project Description:

 

Chalantika Slum Children Development Project (CSCDP) is working in Chalantika slum of Mirpur in Dhaka since 2013. Currently, the project is funded by ADRA Czech Republic and ADLER Czech. CSCDP have also got funding through the small local project of Czech Republic Development corporation of New Delhi in the previous years. CSCDP mainly supports the slum children who are more vulnerable, drop out of the school, working in the streets collecting recycles due to financial problem, children who wander around and are not going to schools. To address these children CSCDP started working in this area. Now, CSCDP has 85 children who are going to government primary school. Among them, 5 children have successfully completed the Primary School Certificate (PSC) and continuing education. 85 mothers of these 85 children are also involved with CSCDP.

 

The 85 targeted children who are coming to the CSCDP center are going to government primary school and receiving one nutritious meal from the project. This children's family are not capable to support all education material, uniform, and required items to them. CSCDP is providing all of these to them from the beginning of its intervention. The children in this area are mainly malnourished and do not get the nutritious meal. However, the project is providing one nutritious meal per day. Now, 90% of them are healthy. They also get the opportunity to get treatment from MBBS doctor through CSCDP. At the beginning of the project, children were of different ages and not going to school, after five years now all the children are attending school in different grades. The mothers of the children are also regularly coming to the literacy sessions. Through the sessions, they are now able to read, write and sign their name. They are also aware of the importance of child education and child rights. Mothers’ income has also increased who participated in tailoring training. Overall, they are now motivated to change their living conditions through CSCDP activities and motivation.
