Bangladesh, being a third world developing country, suffers from chronic poverty and illiteracy. The poorest people, who mostly live in the slum areas, cannot find enough employment opportunities to sustain their families, let alone send their children to schools. Hence, these kids grow up to be child laborers and engage in unsavory professions from a very early age. Lack of proper education is the reason their families cannot get out of this cycle of poverty.
The ultimate goal of this project is to provide free of cost education of international standard to these destitute children, so that they can eventually extricate themselves from the clutches of poverty. The project will also focus on their emotional and physical development by taking care of issues such as their nutrition, hygiene and health care, so that these kids are able to grow up and make a place for themselves in the world as global citizens.
Presently, the school facilitates 1800 children, which will be increased the beneficiary to be 2400 in 13 schools. The long term goal is to set up at least one school in each of the 64 districts throughout Bangladesh. Our plan is to start educating the kids from the age of 4-5 and give them at least 12-14 years of international standard education along with vocational training.
