Who We Are
‘Joy Shokol Shishur’ blessing home is a registered foundation — an initiative of KK Foundation which has been founded to aid in rescuing children from situations of abuse, homelessness or severe neglect. We do this by giving residential care, supporting education, medicine and opportunities for self-sufficiency and dignity.
The home started its journey in November 2018 by Arch Mazherul Qader, a philanthropic social worker, to protect and heal children victimized by neglect, exploitation and homelessness; also, from the abusive and uncaring environment of the slums of Dhaka and poverty-stricken villages beyond. We believe this program makes a big difference in these young lives.
The journey began with three children since November 2018 and now it is providing shelter to more than 75 distressed children. The home is equipped with good facilities and proper supervision ensuring that every child can look forward to a better future. Well trained staff and caretakers look after the children with love, warmth, security, and stability that only a home can provide.
Our mission is to participate and work together with local authorities and individuals to offer a chance at life and a new start to homeless and endangered children. We intend to give good education, periodic medical care, security and affection, a supportive environment that promotes self-discipline, motivation and excellence in learning.
Our vision is to provide safety, nutrition, education, medical attention and love that these abandoned children deserve, enable and empower such children to stand on their own feet, help them become responsible citizens, and lead meaningful lives contributing to the people and society around them.
