With supporters and donors, the Shafat Memorial School in Ashulia has completed the groundfloor and can start the Pre K and Kindergarten classess as soon as the Goverment allows the schools to be physically open in Bangladesh.
The playspace and teacher's toilets are still to be built in the second floor. Also we would need support with buying furnitures and education materials. A computer lab has been constructed to promote computer literacy for the kids and also for after school lessons to local girls and women.
With adequate funding the school is also preparing to open remotely. To open remotely, we would need to purchase at least two computers, get access to wifi and internet and hire an IT support person.
The school is also planning to start a virtual training selecting at least 4 teachers from the community and also we will be including volunteer instructors from North America who can provide trainings virtually and also are willing to teach classes.
The school need to collect fund for the operational cost at least for three months to ensure uninterruted learning for the students.
A Pre-K and Day care is to be started in two months as many Ready Made Garments factory workers had to leave their kids in their villages but willing to bring them if they have access to a secured day care facility.
