Meet Ria: A 7 year-old slum child in Dhaka

In Bangladesh, millions of slum children are forced into work so they can earn money for food. Sometimes they work in landfills picking rubbish, other times they work as window washers or street vendors.

When they’re relying on these jobs for food money, they don't have the time to go to school.

We're doing everything we can to change that. Every school day, we feed over 900 schoolchildren in the heart of Dhaka’s slums.

Seven year-old Ria is one of those children.
