The need for assistance to the urban poor of Bangladesh continues to be strong and, as a result, the Goal and Purpose of the UCEP Programme remain entirely valid. It currently reaches a small proportion of working children and aims to reach more. The way UCEP was established and has developed make it extremely susceptible to changes in the overseas aid policies of foreign governments. For both of these reasons, it is important that UCEP finds ways to raise higher levels of funding from non-donor sources.
