By introducing Distance Education Unit on Boats, Shidhulai Swanirvar Sangstha is educating girls and young women of inaccessible villages on primary education, human rights and sustainable farming.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In Bangladesh 20 million people are living besides 7,000 rivers-streams, but river basins are underdeveloped as planning of roads did not consider river networks and electricity-telephone is concentrated around roads. Government/NGOs are not active as the villages are so hard to reach; therefore they do not have any access to information resources, resulting child trafficking, early marriage, poor access to education, and knowledge gap on pesticide usage etc. The project benefits 439,380 people.

How will this project solve this problem?

Boat Schools with classroom, library, and computers bring primary education, Digital Schools provide knowledge on literacy & human right, and Internet Unit on boats with multimedia equipments, phone, email etc for learning on agriculture-environment.

Potential Long Term Impact

SSS has ensured higher enrollments of girls in education, improved literacy rate, lessened human rights violation, enhanced the overall health of aquatic system, controlled killing of fish and insects, and improved quality of life of 439,380 people.
