The World Economic Forum (WEF) Global Shapers, Dhaka
Hub is organizing “Taal-Goal”, a
football tournament for the underprivileged children residing in slums across
Dhaka. Isolated from the mainstream society, these children are the most
vulnerable inhabitants of this city. Their childhood remains locked in the slum
and adolescence is spent in the dark lanes and corners, which eventually push
them towards an even darker future. Crossing the invisible line that separates
the slums from the rest of this city is merely a dream to them. A dream to
integrate to be able to see and grow with dignity and enjoy life. We, the Dhaka
Hub of Global Shapers, are committed to make Dhaka a socially inclusive city.
Therefore, we designed our flagship project “Taal-Goal” to use sports as a tool
to reduce crime and drug abuse among the most underprivileged children of this
The project will be primarily arranged and organized
by the Global Shapers of Dhaka Hub, with the help of corporate sponsors and
generous supporters. In this regard, we seek your support for the initiative.
WEF is the International institution for public and
private cooperation to shape global, regional, national and industry agendas.
The Global Shapers Community is a network of Hubs developed and led by
young people who are exceptional in their potential, their achievements and
their drive to make a contribution to their communities.
