The Association for Community Development (ACD) has a primary mandate to ensure the rights of women and children in the greater Rajshahi region of Bangladesh. Its many programs endeavor to integrate community development and human rights strategies; however, its focus remains on women, adolescents and children at the community level. ACD works to combat the trafficking and sexual exploitation of women and children. The Shelter Home provides shelter, education, and life-skills training to victims of human trafficking. These children, both girls and boys, are being provided with the opportunities that will enable them to become contributing members of society. 

You can change the world — one child at a time.
