EXPLORING THEIR DAILY LIFE
This video clip portrays that -with the given limitations like low income, physical hardship, health hazards etc.the rickshaw drivers still have found happiness to make their life worthy.

Findings of our project on cycle rickshaw driver in Dhaka city:
 We had done our survey in Dhaka city exploring the

daily life experiences of a rickshaw driver named Rokon Miah . We had also gathered data from other rickshaw driver who lived in Dhamrai. We observed that the children were suffering in malnutrition.
The water and sanitation condition were tremendously unhealthy.

Working with the socio-economical condition of a rickshaw driver of Dhaka city we must say that they are doing hardship to survive.

All of us came to an agreement that we will cooperate with them, help and will never bargain with rickshaw fare.
WE WERE TOGETHER…
