Letter from the editors

Dear readers and followers,

it has been now for almost three years that this weblog is informing you about the daily lifes, the struggles, dreams and desires of slum dwellers all over Bangladesh. With very personal stories the weblog aims to tell you "stories from within" and to lead to an understanding of urban poverty that goes beyond statistics.

During the last couple of months we took a break and re-organized the page, however we still registered more than 10.000 page visits of readers from every continent up to day.
We would like to thank you all for your unbroken interest and expect you will continue to visit us. Furthermore, we thank all the contributors who invested their time to share their stories.

We did some layout changes to the blog and will come up with fresh stories and images from urban poor communities in Bangladesh over the next weeks. Please spread the news and give other people the chance to read this blog - tell them!

As always: we would like to invite new authors interested in posting with us. We encourage all of you strongly to send us your stories, images or videos that cover aspects of urban poverty in Bangladesh.

Sincerely Yours,

The Editors

  1. dear Editors,
    we, akankha, best considered as a NGO, are consisting of around 50 people all around germany. our vision, as it is diverse, is first of all to raise money and hand it over to help the people of bangladesh, especially we are aiming for the educational system and to built up a school.
    So, as you can imagine, we are quite glad to find the content you present on your blog. We are strongly interested to get and deepen the contact to Sheila. She is one of the women telling her story about teaching some pupils with lack of space. So please be so kind and hand our wish over to her and please get back to us soon.
    Kindest regards
    Shila Roy
