Challenge

Bangladesh has achieved a 100% enrollment in primary education but 38.3% student drops out of high school (Banbeis,2016). The condition is much worse in the south west coastal district, Satkhira, since the area is regularly affected by disasters, 46% are poor(WB,2016), and 30% are dalit population. These reasons increases drop out rate and reduces class performance in both primary and high school . The project will work directly with 150 ultra poor students from 2 schools in Satkhira district.

Solution

The project will provide school items to 150 students. The items include school dress, monthly stipend and educational material such as copies, pen, pencil, geometry box and school bag. A committee will be formed with teachers and parents through which ultra-poor children will be selected and the items will be provided. This will encourage more and more children to attend school, reduce drop out rate and increase class performance

Long-Term Impact

The project will fund 150 students which will help them to perform better in education and encourage them to attend school regularly. This will encourage other local people to help with the project activities in the future which will ensure the sustainability of the project and create a long term positive impact. Overall, the project will produce capable human capital in the future and become a role model for other similar projects across the country.
