Our Work

CHILD DEVELOPMENT (CDC)

Bangladesh Nazarene Mission is working for development of vulnerable and marginalized children through Child Development Centers in different parts of Bangladesh that offers children a safe environment where they can thrive and grow. The center provides support for health and wellness—including safe drinking water, medical checkups, and nutritious meals. It also provides social, emotional, and educational support through activities like after-school tutoring, cultural activities, and time to play. Through the love and teaching of the staff, children gain firsthand experience of the love and care and are given the opportunity to grow. CDCs are also working to stop early marriage and child labor and protect every child from all form of abuse. The mothers of the children are organized in the Self-Help Groups for their socio-economic development. BNM is operating over 70 CDCs where more than 3,000 children attend regularly.
