Children’s Uplift Program (CUP) is a hub of hope for women on the streets of Dhaka the capital of Bangladesh. CUP takes a holistic approach to working with children in high risk situations and recognises that to help them, they must also walk alongside their mothers. By providing support and vocational training to mothers, women are empowered to find alternative employment and create a more stable home environment for their children.
