Child labor is one of the most serious threats to a child's proper development. To address the country's child labor problem, the government of Bangladesh prohibits the participation of any child under the age of 15 in any form of paid labor. However, without community awareness, this step may be ineffective.Awareness against Child Labor

Human trafficking is one of the most heinous crimes against humanity. Traffickers typically prey on young and vulnerable children and women, especially in slum areas. As a result, it is critical to educate children about human trafficking.Read More
Dengue fever has recently spread throughout Bangladesh. The volume of patients is overwhelming hospitals. This happens every year during this season.

We understand your willingness to donate your hard-earned money towards a cause that actually makes a difference. In a recent study by UNICEF, 40% of Bangladesh’s population is children and 600,000 of those innocent souls are not continuing their education.
All it takes to change this scenario is some willing people. You cannot help all 600,000 children but you can help one. With only $30 a month, you can help a child in Bangladesh get an education. And this can be the start of the change.Learn More
We at Shapla Foundation believe that behind every young child who believes in himself is an adult who believed first. All our kids need is a little help, a little hope and someone who believes in them.
When you sponsor a child in need, you intertwine their lives with yours for the better. More specifically, when you sponsor a child’s education you are able to give that youth the tools they need to grow themselves towards a better life. Like it’s said; - “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”.Children Waiting For Sponsorship
The gift of knowledge is the greatest gift anyone can give to someone. Books open the door to boundless knowledge from all countries and of all times. With the Shapla Foundation Library, we want to give this gift to our sponsored children. This is not going to be easy without your help. Help us to share knowledge in any way you can.
Helping others is part of human nature. Shapla Foundation allows you to sponsor a child in Bangladesh to help pay for the child’s education, food, clothing, and shelter. There are plenty of child sponsorship programs available where organizations connect sponsors with poor children around the world. However, as a sponsor, you may not know how much of your donations actually reach the child you are sponsoring and how they are progressing.
Shapla Foundation solves this accountability issue with a transparent donation distributing system and regular updates on the children. You can even communicate with the child you're sponsoring. Also, if taking responsibility for a child is too much, we have smaller projects you can sponsor or co-sponsor and make a difference.Learn More About Us
