Baby Taxi – Bangladesh Tour 2020

Join Muslim Charity from Friday 11th September – Saturday 19th September 2020 Baby Taxi – Bangladesh Tour 2020.

Yeah Baby – Driving a 3-wheel Baby Taxi across Sylhet, Bangladesh

Get ready for another incredible experience with Muslim Charity and its volunteer family TeamMC.


This time you will be driving a 3-wheel Baby Taxi across the beautiful plains of Greater Sylhet, Bangladesh. Relax in your 3-wheeler as you soak up the gentle warm sun, take in the sights and sounds of village bazaars, and watch the slow pace of village life. The pace will be slow and sweet to enable us to enjoy the trip and is in no way a race to the finishing line. We will stop regularly to drink desi tea and hot snacks from the stalls and enjoy the stunning landscapes and waterways that make up Sylhet’s charm.

The tour will wrap around all of Sylhet touching almost all major areas and beauty spots. We will also be visiting our children of the world projects such as the ‘Slum Schools’ where you will get an opportunity to interact with the children and distribute goodies and gifts.

We can’t think of a better way to experience the serenity of Sylhet and enjoy the infamous hospitality of the Sylheti people. Join an amazing team of likeminded people and connect with the heart of Bangladesh and share an experience that you will be talking for years to come.

Highlights of Sylhet


Home to lush green field paddy fields, beautiful tea estates, and home to the diaspora Bangladeshi community in the UK Sylhet has everything for the nomadic traveller.

You will sample tasty snacks on the road while sipping the super sweet desi chai made with freshly brewed tea leaves.

We will stopover to take small boat trips so you too can experience the serenity of the waterways in Bangladesh and time permitting fish in the waters that provide all of Sylhet its flavoursome fish.

The Cause


With your help, we will be donating a new baby taxi to a vulnerable poor family.

The representative from the family will be trained and given all the help in setting up their new taxi Rickshaw business so they can provide for their families with dignity and respect.

The families that have been selected are all in desperate need of assistance. To supplement the family income children are expected to work backbreaking hours in hazardous conditions.

These children do not even have the ability to dream or aspire beyond their next meal. Due to these difficult situations children more inclined to run away, abuse drugs, or exploited.

Our gift will enable a balanced and structured home life for the children. It will provide sufficient income to support a small family and enable the children to leave work and go to school.

We hope with this gift we can reduce the exploitation of young children and save families from having to make the heartbreaking decision to send their children to work.
