Voluntary Association for Family Welfare and Social Development (VAFWSD)
Welcome to VAFWSD
Bangladesh is one of the poorest countries in the world. The time when a child might be grown-up with affection of parents, they have to go to school, in that time a large number of children of our country go out to arrange their food. Stern reality is that they are far away from their rights of education, health, dwelling, protection, recreation, affection and love.
Main thirst of the project is to replace children from hazardous to non hazardous job and creating self employment to improve their lives & livelihood, status, dignity and creating brighter future of underprivileged children.
Safe home is an interim accommodation for women victim and witness and also for adolescent girls who are victimized & treated as witnesses and Kishore Unnyan Kendra for adolescent boys. These are government institutions run by Department of social service, DSS under Ministry of social welfare. At present there are seven safe homes including Gazipur safe home and Kishore Unnyan Kendra, Tongi run by the Government of Bangladesh.
Voluntary Association for Family Welfare and Social Development (VAFWSD) is a Non-profit, non-political and Non-Government organization. Its activities are not inclined to acquire any ideologically motivated political gain.
With the initiative of Dr. Abdul Kayyum Laskar, VAFWSD was established in 1994
