UKBET Education for Change

UKBET Education for Change runs innovative education programmes for working children in Bangladesh, supporting them into school or vocational training and a brighter safer future. Building the capacity of their families prevents more children being sent to work, and we advocate for an end to child labour.

We've made a few updates to our website and we'd love to know what you think!

Firstly, our new pilot programme working to transform the lives of young women and children in Sylhet forced to collect waste is now live under 'Our Work'. We've also introduced the UN Sustainable Development Goals to all of our programmes so you can see the impact your support has on making our world more equitable! Just look out for the UN SDG icons across our programme pages.

Bangladesh's urban areas have around 400,000 people, who survive by collecting, storing and selling solid waste materials. This is why UKBET is piloting its new project for the education and rehabilitation of children who work on landfills. The pilot will aim bring basic education to 50 children working as waste collectors. Children will be taught literacy, numeracy and life skills by specialist community teachers 3 times a week in education centres close to their workplace. At the same time their families will be supported out of poverty enabling the children to enrol in school or vocational training on a full time basis.
