The dockyard is in the town of Keranigonj where the working environment and the lifestyle are frighteningly dangerous which is full of industrial activities. Around 20,000 workers work here every day and it’s a matter of great regret that the labor charge is too tiny to bear the living expenses which is around 800 taka per day.
The environment of this yard is highly polluted. The water of the river and the air of this place can make any newcomer sick. Though the people who are living in this area are capable enough to adjust themselves with the surroundings. All the waste of this yard goes directly straight to Buriganga which creates huge water pollution though the kids of this area love to have their bath in this river. They often use the yard as their playground. As the people here are living on the edge of poverty, child labor can be seen very often.
