WE ARE WORKING ON STREET CHILDRENS SINCE 2012
After founded in 2012 February 12, We passed a long journey. In our long journey we had lived with so many memories, loves & smiles of around 500 special children for whom we work for. We ‘Children’s Heaven’ is a family of some energetic & young people; are aiming to change the life of street & unprivileged children in Bangladesh. We are trying to protect their rights by giving them proper education, health care & support which they must need for a better future.
‘Children’s Heaven’s Volunteers’ always stay as family & work as a team every time everywhere; whenever they meet for useful gossip or do volunteering. Children’s heaven not only serves for the betterment of the unprivileged children but also do workshop & mentor volunteers to improve their volunteering & personal capabilities.
The year 2016 & 2017 was a great journey we can be proud of. Cause our Children’s Heaven marked its foot prints strongly with the promise of changing the lives of unprivileged Children. We organized various events and workshop for these children.
The Year 2016
We started our journey to 2016 with a Tea Party. In January 15 we ‘Children’s Heaven’ arranged a Tea Party with volunteers to discuss our progress so far & our future events as well as destination for the Children’s Heaven
Following that tea party in February 05 Children’s Heaven Mymensingh arranged Volunteers meetup. We can proudly say that Mymensingh is one of the 5 districts where Children’s Heaven is currently running their operations. Others are Dhaka, Tangail, Jessor & Bagerhat. That day Children’s Heaven planned for the coming Valentine Day – 14 February to spread the love of lives among unprivileged children. We believe that they came to this world for love and it’s our duty to give them better life & love they deserve. Children’s Heaven Mymensingh visited ‘Silpa Charja Jaynul Abedin Archive’ & ‘Mini Zoo’ in Mymensingh with children & share the happiness of love on that lovely valentine day.
Bangladesh has a growing number of cancer invaded children. To create awareness ‘Children’s Heaven Dhaka’ in co-operation with ‘Bangladesh Children Academy’ in 15 February – the International Childhood Cancer Day (ICCD) arranged ‘Playing with Color of Story’ for cancer invaded children. According to IARC (2015) childhood cancer is increasing from 165,000 to 215,000. And we have to take initiatives to stop it right now.
Our February month come to an end with a seminar in West Bangle, India. It was on Children Education & Youth Career Counselling. It was in 19 February
Most of the unprivileged children can’t afford educational instruments or go to school. This is where we have taken initiative to support these children & bring them under the lights of education. Like every year we distributed educational stuffs to children who need them most. In 18 March 2016 we went to Mohakhali & gave *** children educational accessories.
We are destroying our environment by throwing waste here & there. We Children’s Heaven believe that our little contribution to our society will encourage others to do the same & make a change for the better. For that we launched an event named ‘Cleaning to be Green’. We select the Rabindra Sarabar Dhanmandi-Dhaka area for cleaning. We did this event with YDC(Youth Development Council), SUDHA(****) & MMC(****).
Children who we called unprivileged or street children should be independent from harmful life. They should be happy and independent to choose their own happy life. This 26 March 2016 Children’s Heaven Maymansing & Jamalpur celebrate the day with children’s and spread the happiness of independence. We tell them the dark story of 25 & 26 march which they should learn about.
In 29 April, Children’s Heaven tried to look closely the lives of the street children, for that Children’s Heaven went to Mohakhali and find the story of those children, understand their dreams, need & demand from the life they are living.

Smile Center is a place where Children are given educational access freely & enjoyably. There we teach those unprivileged with our dedicated volunteers. And ensure their educational rights.
First aid is a lifesaving treatment about which most of us is unaware of. In Dhaka because of poverty most of the poor family don’t know the basic steps of primary treatment if someone get sick. June 1, 2016 Children’s Heaven organized a workshop ‘First Aid’ for people who should know these treatments in case of emergency. Following that in 8 June, we did a medical camp in Dhaka for poor family who struggled to see a doctor for their treatment.
‘RAMADAN’ the month of blessing. We ‘Children’s Heaven’ Maymansing arranged iftar for special children in 24 June. We tried to bring smiles in their face that day and share the happiness of Ramadan with them. Otherwise Most of these children can’t afford new cloths in RAMADAN. So, like every year in Eid Ul Fiter (June 29 2016 ) Children’s Heaven Maymansing managed to give 100 of unprivileged children Eid gifts. Having those gift made them so much happy & their smile was our gift for the day.
We didn’t stop by doing one EID event. On 2nd July RUNNER Bangladesh with Children’s Heaven managed to do EID Food Distribution event among special children in Dhaka city. On 3rd July Children’s Heaven Bagerhat & on 8th July Children’s Heaven Jossor gave EID gift to unprivileged children too.
Who didn’t love to have toys when they were children. Every year most of the privileged children waste thousands of toys. So we decided to collect some of those toys every 6 months & give these among children. So, in 28 July we arranged a Toy distribution event in Smile Center Mohakhali. It was unbelievable that little things brought greater happiness to these children.
We ended our 2016 journey with several volunteers meet up in different branches. We tried to sum up our yearlong activities & progress. We arranged volunteer meet up on November 5 Jossor Zone &18th November celebrate Children Day there. On November 25 we do the Volunteers Meet up at Dhaka & fixed our 2017 works.

Most of the Street Children have skin disease as because they don’t bath regularly. We Children’s Haven have taken initiatives to teach them the benefits of regular bathing. To full fill that purpose, in 21 April 2017 we arranged ‘Bathing Festival’ at airport railway station Dhaka. That day we teach 50+ street children why they should take bath regularly & also gave some basic Bathing Accessories.
