AMRAO MANUSH – WE MATTER TOO

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.
