A child is any person under the age of 18 [UN CRC]. Every child has certain fundamental rights, these rights are often referred to as children’s rights. Bangladesh has taken significant steps to improve the lives of children and protect their rights. Various institutions and organizations have dedicated themselves to working on child rights issues, reflecting the collective commitment to ensuring a better future.

In a milestone development, the Girl Child Advocacy Forum, in collaboration with Good Neighbors Bangladesh and other organizations, recently published the ‘Status of Girl Children 2021-2022’ report. This report sheds light on the overall status of girl children in Bangladesh, report reveals 224 girls were victims of sexual harassment and torture, 191 girls were victims of child marriage, 2,104 girls were victims of rape, 484 girls were victims of suicide, moreover, pictures of the torture of girls’ children due to various reasons such as murder, domestic labor torture, etc. are horrible.

From January to August 2023, new statistics have emerged, showing that children continue to face these challenges. 329 victims of sexual harassment and torture, 260 victims of child marriage, 493 victims of rape, 181 victims of suicide.
