Let me share an extraordinary story of a young boy who rose from extreme poverty to a capable man to work for any leading textile enterprises in Bangladesh. His painful but incredible journey has set a milestone in our quest for a poverty-free society. Who could disagree that extreme poverty is a distressing and disturbing form of discrimination and violence in any part of the world? And child poverty is a ruthless reminder of an unequal reality, even more painfully. Still, the rise of Md. Rubel, 22, from discrimination to development, is a sheer indication that people like you and me, if we want, can change the lives dwindling around child poverty and socio-economic distress.
