Concern Worldwide Bangladesh has been working with pavement dwellers since the launch of our flagship programme "Amrao Manush - we are human too" in 2008.
Pursuing a comprehensive development strategy, we prioritise increasing programme participants' incomes and creating their access to basic services such as shelter, education, healthcare, water, and sanitation.
This paper presents some of the results of the Amrao Manush programme. For example, the programme has reached over 24,500 homeless people from a total of 5,448 urban extreme poor households in 32 wards of Dhaka and Chittagong City Corporations.
