"Cappuccino for a Cause" is a humanitarian initiative taken by International retail coffeehouse chain shop Gloria Jean's Coffees Bangladesh.
Gloria Jean's Coffee Bangladesh will contribute a portion from their cappuccino sales, which is the bestselling drink of GJC, to Niketan, an innovative care organisation, in order to bring a smile to thousands of disabled children. On March 2020, Niketan and Gloria Jean's Coffees Bangladesh signed a MoU in this regard.
Niketan offers high-quality care and education for children with a complex disability in Bangladesh. They dream of a world in which children with complex disabilities are accepted and can join schools, a world in which they can decide their future. They believe that the best way to do this is through a holistic approach.
According to figures from the World Health Organization, 15 percent of the world's population has a disability. In low-and-middle-income countries such as Bangladesh, this is 20 percent. In a lot of cases, the disabled simply feel invisible, because they are tucked away in their homes out of shame or for practical reasons. Gloria Jean's Coffees Bangladesh has decided to stand beside Niketan, for the care and education for handicapped children in Bangladesh.
