View All Stories
Bangladesh is one of the five worst countries for child labor . Sixteen-year-old Joytun was injured in a fire at the bakery where she worked after dropping out of school to support her family. World Vision enrolled her in an informal education program, which helped her prepare to return to school. World Vision also helped her mother start a small grocery business that more than replaces the money Joytun was making in child labor.
