The 10 children rescued from the rented flat of Odommo Bangladesh Foundation at section C of Banasree in Rampura, all aged between nine and 14, confirmed that it was their shelter home. They were picked up from the streets following close observation by the activists working for the organisation.

The organisation runs two schools for street children in Sadarghat and Agargaon areas named “Mojar Iskul” and “Pothoshishu O Amra.”
