Partner: Ezra Simon Ssemwanga

Ezra Simon Ssemwanga opened Suubi Child Development Center ("Suubi") on May 23, 2005. The initial purpose of Suubi was to provide neighborhood orphans and needy children with free education in the hopes that the children, who otherwise would never have had the opportunity to receive any education, will become productive members of the community. The second phase of Suubi has already been started with the opening of the orphanage. The goal is to be able to provide food, shelter, and education to those orphans and street children, while directing them toward a relationship with their true Father and Lord.

Issues - Cambodia

Cambodia map be a hero

The UN ranks Cambodia as one of the world’s poorest countries and the people of Poipet have very little. As a border town Poipet is home to many Cambodians who hope to find work in Thailand. Most fail, and are relegated to the huge slum communities, becoming drawn into the town’s underground world of illegal gambling, prostitution, and sex trafficking. At particular risk are the 300 street children who daily carry packages across the border for the equivalent of only seven cents per delivery, sleeping in the open at night. Many of these children are kidnapped, trafficked across borders, and forced to work in the international sex trade.

Issues - Bangladesh

on Friday, 06 September 2013. Posted in Bangladesh, The Facts, HIV/AIDs & other diseases, War and Conflict, Extreme Poverty, Exploitation, Homelessness, Human Trafficking, Natural Disasters, Slave Labour & Exploitation

Bangladesh is one of the world's most densely populated countries, with its people crammed into a delta of rivers that empties into the Bay of Bengal.

Poverty is deep and widespread; almost half of the population live on less than one dollar a day. However, Bangladesh has reduced population growth and improved health and education.

171,000 children under five die in Bangladesh every year. Unclean water, contagious diseases, pneumonia and poor nutrition take their toll. In a country with 11% inflation and growing inequality, keeping children alive and healthy is a huge challenge.

The major employer is agriculture, but it is unable to meet the demand for jobs. So, many Bangladeshis - in common with citizens from other countries in the region - seek work abroad, sometimes illegally.

The low-lying country is vulnerable to flooding and cyclones and it stands to be badly affected by predicted rises in sea levels.
