Fight Orphan & Abandoned Child Hunger & End Chemically Tainted Children's’ Food.


https://www.launchgood.com/campaign/computers_for_juniors_2#!/

Problems: 


Orphaned & Abandoned Child Hunger:
Single and poor mothers from the lowest income households in Bangladesh - are unable to feed their children - who are orphaned or abandoned by their parent/s.

These hungry orphaned and abandoned children are forced into bonded or hazardous child labour or prostitution, working long hours. They DO NOT attend SCHOOL as they are forced to WORK due to HUNGER.

- A quarter of the population in extreme poverty
- A third of children out of school.
- 1 child out of 33 die before 5th birthday - 4 times higher than US.               - A third of all children stunted from malnourishment. 



Tainted Children’s Foods:
Children in Bangladesh cannot escape eating foods injected with formalin or other chemicals. Hence they face serious illnesses including paralysis, cancer and organ failure. Even milk, chocolate and baby food is often fake or chemically manufactured. 

Solutions: 

PARIS’s Education Program feeds, shelters, clothes and educates abandoned & orphaned children (Zakat funded). PARIS provides food to single mother households who agree to send their children to school instead of to work. PARIS has partnered with Jaago Foundation and government schools to send these children to school. 

PARIS’s VEX Robotics, Coding & Building Computer Lab Program. At PARIS, we believe in breaking the cycle of poverty through education. PARIS enhances the education for the poorest children through its partnership with Jaago Foundation school in Korail Bostee. PARIS has donated 26 refurbished laptops, built a computer lab and taught coding to Korail Bostee school children. It has also donated $10,000 worth VEX robot parts to the Jaago Foundation Korail Bostee school children and are teaching them how to build and program the robot. PARIS has engaged one of the top VEX robotics teams in the US to teach these children virtually through zoom sessions. (Sadaka funded).

PARIS's Stop Tainted Children’s Foods Program: PARIS has created a volunteer Community Watch program in which it works with authorities, community leaders, vendors and journalists to catch and report fake or chemically tainted children’s foods to the public. It also helps arrange for an alternative source of income for the culprit and takes action for punitive measures against the culprit in case of non-cooperation.
