The GSRD Foundation and Terre des Hommes collaborate in a project to empower children from the poorest families who are engaged in hazardous child labour, forced work or child domestic work. The goal of the project is to protect vulnerable children in Dhaka from exploitation of this kind and to take them out of situations where they face the most hazardous work, or are forced to work or are exploited as domestic child labour.

The project aims to affect the lives of 4,370 children, young people, and their families, with the provision of direct assistance via community engagement and capacity building; there is a major role here for market demand based vocational training and job placement. The collaboration also hopes to positively influence the lives of 100,000 children and their families, and policymakers within companies and governments, by offering indirect assistance in the form of advocacy and knowledge management services.
