In Bangladesh, child trafficking, child marriage, and child labor are a cursed existence that destroys generations of local children. Nayeem, a 17-year-old leader of a funded children's forum, has so far prevented 37 child marriages, assisted two victims of sexual harassment and rescued a child trafficking case. Naeem lost his parents at a very young age, so Naeem's childhood grew up unattended and neglected, which turned him into an introverted boy who was afraid to speak in public and faced challenges. It is not easy to have such courage.

Naeem asked one of the industry email list boys and learned that they were members of the children's forum, so he began to participate in the forum activities out of curiosity. "I never knew what children's rights were. After attending the forum, I realized that I was a child laborer and abused child," Naim said excitedly. Since then, he has actively participated in various trainings and has taken a step closer to participating in leadership activities.
The boy who used to be shy in speaking in public began to teach others how to speak confidently. Through the activities of the Children's Forum, Naeem and his partners trained 1,300 children in eight schools on child safety, child law, and child rights. Naeem said: "Change is always accompanied by many challenges. I have a dream. I hope to build a future where children are free from violence. I am not afraid of difficulties. As long as someone supports and encourages me, this is the strength that I can persevere further." You are invited to choose to sponsor the child who has been waiting the longest! When
