Challenge

In Bangladesh, 30 percent of the overall population lives in unbelievable poverty in slums where there's no concept of literacy despite achieving lower-middle income country status in 2016. Many parents, particularly those in extreme poverty in slums have no knowledge of early childhood care and education and hence earn petty incomes, which affects children's psychological and social development. Continuing illiteracy will perpetuate their poverty and confine them to minimum wage, laborious jobs

Solution

Over 1080 and 720 Coaching students are enrolled in 12 FFDA Learning Center. The Dhaka Slum LC (Preschool) needs funding to continue its operations. Preschools are a 1 year program during which 4-6 year olds are prepared to enter the elementary school system and Coaching are also free of coast 1 year program during class 3 to 5 are prepared to enter the next class. The kids are provided supplies, text and note books. They acquire basic literacy skills which enable them to pass the required test

Long-Term Impact

The Slum residents have no resources for admission in mainstream government schools. Thus, over 90% of them are illiterate and only 10 % of their kids are in elementary schools. Preschools play a vital role in empowering the kids by facilitating their admission in elementary schools, thus putting them on a path to addressing illiteracy within their community. The impact from educating these over 750 kids will last over several future generations as they will in turn ensure education.
