Listen to the song that one of the girls sang
One of the very sad repercussions of extreme poverty in Bangladesh is the amount of orphaned children. Many of them are abandoned when very young and end up on the streets. The lucky ones are taken in by orphanages like the one above. There are over 1200 boys and girls at this Madrassa- a religious school that is funded by private donations. School instruction ranges from grades one to an advanced college degree. These girls are resilient on the outside but one can’t help but wonder the psychological scars that they have had to bear.
