Bethany Children's Village Program

The Problem

Bangladesh is a small Asian country bordering India and Burma with the Bay of Bengal to the south. Bamboo and rattan trees abound as well as large tea gardens and centuries’ old archeological sites.

With a population of 169 million, Bangladesh is one of the world’s most densely populated countries. Yet for all its natural charm and beauty, Bangladesh has struggled since its founding in 1971 with incredible challenges such as overcrowding, widespread poverty, floods and other natural disasters.

The Barisal District in southern Bangladesh is one of the country’s poorest regions where many orphans and vulnerable children struggle to survive.

The Program

International Needs’ Bethany Children’s Village was built for orphans and destitute children to provide them with basic necessities such as food, shelter, and education. Our partners are committed to bring physical, emotional, and spiritual healing to the “forgotten children of Bangladesh.”

Over the years, hundreds of lives have been transformed with many of the school’s former students going on to higher education and achieving positions of influence in their communities.

Bethany Children’s Village currently provides support for 150 boys. The staff is working hard to help the boys acquire a good education and the skills they need to excel in their future endeavors and the new age of technology.

“I would like to express my heartiest thanks to all the teachers and staff at Bethany Children’s Village for their contribution in my life. Without the help of International Needs and the support of my sponsor, I would not have been able to stand on my feet. They gave me the drive to succeed.” Uttam, former student at Bethany Children’s Village.
