400 thousand Street children in Dhaka, Bangladesh

Bangladesh has more than 64 million children, and 400 hundreds of thousands of them live on the streets in Dhaka. These children are denied an education, medical care and acceptance in society. Street children in Bangladesh are 2.5 times more likely to be excluded from school than their counterparts from wealthier backgrounds, locking them into a vicious cycle of poverty. Street children can often be found sleeping rough at Kamalapur, the main railway station in Dhaka, and its neighbouring bus station.
