ABOUT LEEDO

Every child deserves to live in a safe and loving environment. In one of the poorest countries and most densly populated country it is a challenge to garantuee most children affection and safety. We at LEEDO work passionly towards the goal, to support the least fortunate and most vulnerable of children: street children.

Every day our street workers and street educators are out on the street to rescue children in need of support. Our Transitional Shelter identifies the reason the child has no home and locates possible family members. If family reintegration is no option our Peace Home offers a new loving family environment and offers the children a bright future.

Please support our work!

Support LEEDO

As we are organized as a non-profit organization, we are depended on the generosity of people in- and outside of Bangladesh to continue with our efforts to educate and rescue street children. Everyday innocent children arrive at the train stations and terminals of Dhaka. They are in immediate danger of being taken by human traffickers or ‘owners’ who hold them as working slaves. Sexual and physical abuse happens are everyday threats.

Transitional Shelter SETU

LEEDO operates a Transitional Shelter SETU ~ providing a bridge from street-life to home-life ~ at Babu Bazar, where children, who are in need of a shelter, are invited to stay. When a child arrives at the shelter….
