    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Poverty in Bangladesh is acute so do shelter problem. Every year thousands of people become homeless due to excessive river erosion. Besides, pervasive rural poverty has been associated with a high proportion of landless households, which in turn contributes to homelessness.

    Dhaka and other major cities in Bangladesh attract hundreds of thousands of migrants from rural areas every year. The city is unable to provide shelter, food, education, healthcare, and employment for its rapidly-expanding population. An estimated 3.4 million people live in the overcrowded slums of Dhaka, and much more live in public spaces lacking the most basic shelter. While a small but growing body of research describes the lives of people who live in urban informal settlements or slums, microscopic research describes the population with no housing at all. The homeless as people who sleep on streets, railway terminals and platforms, bus stations, parks and open spaces, religious centres, construction sites, around graveyards, and in other public spaces with no roof. Anecdotally, the homeless population in Dhaka and other major cities is known to face extortion, erratic unemployment, exposure to violence, and sexual harassment and to engage in high-risk behaviours.

    It is impossible to solve all the problems related to poverty and homelessness in Bangladesh. But I can help a tiny portion of the homeless population like old people, who have no supports at all, by helping them with at least a shelter to spend their rest of the life. In this mission, I desperately need your help to give generously to raise at least £10,000 before December 2016. I hope you will help me generously.
