We have the honour to invite your kind attention to the fact that Ek Ronga EK Ghuri – EREG has been working for vulnerable children living on the street for many years. Our goal is to achieve a country free of street children and vulnerable people by focusing on rescue, reintegration and referral based activities. For the development of the underprivileged and less fortunate children’s lifestyle, we have initiated School for street children. They are receiving full livelihood facilities and basic rights like formal education, food, shelter, entertainment, sports & games etc. in a friendly atmosphere. Ek Ronga EK Ghuri – EREG is a not for profit, volunteer based development organization founded in 2008. The organization was initiated by a group of social and human rights activists, writer & poets aiming to improve the life of children forced to live in extreme difficult situations on the street and also to address the needs of the growing number of vulnerable street children in Bangladesh.
