Day Care

Domestic workers labor from morning to evening in various houses. The majority of domestic workers are single mothers. Many women have spouses who are either at work or do not want to care for their children. They believe it is a woman’s job. For the time being, many mothers are unable to take time off and achieve work-life balance because their income is required to feed their children.

In this situation, the children of the domestic workers are left at home alone.  Being alone at home puts the children at various risks.  

The risks are:

  1. Trafficking
  2. Sexual Abuse
  3. Accidents
  4. Intoxication

Furthermore, mothers had to jeopardize their children’s learning and development.

The following examples and scenarios provide a detailed description of the problems:

  • Poor families from villages migrate to cities in search of work. Women in Dhaka’s slums labor at the same rate as males to provide for their families. Housemaids labor on a monthly basis from morning to evening in various residences. Domestic workers’ mothers are involved in both the task of parenting their children and the task of working. Fathers often have no role in raising children. Their children are left at home alone while their mothers work.
  • Another common issue is that men moving from rural to urban regions are frequently seen taking a second wife while failing to perform any of the responsibilities of the first wife and children. As a result, the mother is rendered powerless. She must run for money in addition to raising children. In this situation, too, their children are left at home alone.
  • Domestic workers/housemaids are not permitted to bring their children to the house where they work. They are required to leave their children at home or outside the house where they work.
  • The families who live in the slums of Khilgaon, Dhaka, are mostly day laborers. They are completely impoverished. They are unable to obtain their daily square meal. Some parents are enrolling their children in private schools. However, parents cannot continue their children’s education since they cannot pay the school fees. That is why the children are being dropped out of school.

The proposed solution: The Srijonshil Women and Disability Development Organization (SWDDO) attempts to provide a safe environment for the children of domestic workers by establishing a Day Care Center as a first step solution for domestic workers. Srijonshil’s project will focus on underprivileged children who have been abandoned by their families, children from low-income households, and abused children from low-income families in their day-care project because children from 2 to 7 years old of housemaids suffer as a result of their parent’s poverty. As a result, low-income mothers will be able to keep their children safe and secure in our daycare, while also feeling good at work. We will also make certain that children learn and grow.

Project Goals and Objectives 

  • This project aims to address their shelter, food, education, health development 
  • To provide an opportunity for 25 orphans, semi-orphans, and poor children to live in a congenial atmosphere with parental love to pursue their education.
  • To provide shelter, food, education, and clothing for 25 orphans, semi-orphans, and destitute children in Home in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
  • To provide medical care for 25 children who are living in the Home.
  • To impart moral values to children to strengthen them to become self-reliant in the proposed home.

Services: The plan is to provide the following services to the children of the Day Care Centre:

  • Food
  • Education
  • Security
  • Care

Finance: Since the children will be kept with a very small amount of fees, we need the operation cost as a fund for its management. However, this project requires the cooperation of the generous privileged members of the society in the following MoU.

  • International Donors Agency: Our grateful national and international donors contribute significantly to the project’s operation. We will also welcome your organization’s participation in ensuring the Day Care project’s seamless operation and better service to the children.
  • Sponsor for a Kid: Any individual or group interested in annually sponsoring a child is also welcome. Your donation will cover the entire cost of a specific child’s services.
  • Students’ contribution from their tiffin money: We visit different schools with the permission of the school administration and demonstrate to the students the obstacles that our Day Care project’s children face in order to foster empathy among them as well as to encourage them to contribute to this cause with their tiffin money.
  • Donations from notable persons of the local area: We strongly invite noteworthy wealthy individuals or groups to donate to our project as part of their charitable giving and to form a culture to fund this type of cause.
