And we never give up.

Stunting fell from 42 per cent in 2013 to 28 per cent in 2019. Fully vaccinated children increased from 52 per cent in 2001 to 84 per cent in 2019.
Join us as we go the next mile for the nearly 60 million children in Bangladesh, including half a million Rohingya refugee children.
In a country undergoing rapid economic and demographic transition, be part of tackling malnutrition and stagnant wasting. Help protect children from child marriage, child labour and violence. Support the country to invest more in health and education, and to extend safe water to the children who are furthest left behind.
For every child, deliver.
