Najla’s stepfather had already sexually abused her sister and her mother was not protecting her children from other dangers so Najla was taken into the girl’s hostel. Her sister is 27, works at Basha, and helps pay for another sister to study as well. Najla does well in school – her favourite subjects are science and English. Najla looks forward every year to the learning tour the hostel girls go on when they explore a new part of Bangladesh.
Our girls home takes at-risk girls off of the streets of Dhaka and provides shelter, a safe learning environment and resources otherwise unavailable to these young women.
By donating to Friends of Basha, you can help us provide essential programmes that help women and children escape exploitation. Together we can help women and children find freedom and dignity.
Thank you for so much for joining our cause.
