I will be spending my second summer in Dhaka volunteering at an orphanage funded and managed by DCI. The entire program has quality throughout. The orphanage is located in the slum but safely ensconced on the top (6th) floor of an apartment building. The little girls attend school 11 months a year and have a home tutor. They receive dance lessons, their form of PE, and instruction in Islam from paid teachers who come to the orphanage. The children are governed by Rojina Akter, a college graduate in economics who lives with them. She sets up a healthy 4-meal-a-day nutrition system and involves the girls in a system of helping out with orphanage maintenance. When there I live at this very clean, well-run orphanage where the children are delightfully happy.
