The street children of Dhaka are surprisingly resilient and at the same time, big dreamers. There are many children that run away from home knowing that they will face hardship on the streets with only the hope that their dreams will come alive.

The Bangladesh Restless Beings team set out to ask what some of the street children of Dhaka aspire to be when they grew up; what their dreams are, who they hope to be, where they see themselves in the future if they had the choice.

Here are the answers from 12 of the many we asked:

With your support and donation we can help as many children as possible build towards a better life away from drug abuse, malnutrition and sexual exploitation.
