Afrin, who considers Dhaka her second home, has been working at an orphanage and local health clinic led by Distressed Children and Infants (DCI), a non-profit organization helping poor children to access their rights to health, education, economic security and protection. She is teaching English to both staff and the girls at the orphanage. She's also working with staff to develop computer skills, helping them learn to create spreadsheets and documents to help run the orphanage.
