We want to make sure that the most marginalized,
disadvantaged and vulnerable urban poor, including men,
women and children, have a fair chance to live a life of
health, happiness and dignity.
“Amrao Manush” (Improving Livelihoods of Urban Extreme Poor-Pavement Dweller Centre), is a program that works with the extremely deprived and vulnerable urban poor in Dhaka and Chittagong. With the support of Concern Worldwide, Irish Aid and a private donor organization, this program provides essential services to the urban poor, majority of whom struggle against formidable odds to survive on pavements or in under-developed slums or squatter settlements.

“I used to be so afraid of losing him. I was always scared that, someone would steal him and I would never know where to look for him,” recalls Momtaj with tears in her eyes. At the time, clutching her newborn child she named Morsalin, Momtaj had taken to the streets to beg once more.
Momtaj is a blind, 24-year-old mother who was discovered by the Amrao Manush Program as she lay on the street with her newborn child. This is her story.
