THE STORY:

My friend Father Subash is working to rebuild four schools in the Bandarban hill tracts area of Chittagong, Bangladesh.

This summer, four villages supported by the Congregation of the Holy Cross lost their schools due to heavy monsoon rains and flooding.  These schools serve students of minority tribal groups in the Bandarban hill tracts region. For years, the Holy Cross has been fighting to grant these students equal opportunities in education in an area plagued by land disputes and exploitation.

Since the schools have been destroyed, students in these villages have continued to gather outdoors to take lessons from their teachers. We are raising money to support the construction of four bamboo-and-aluminum buildings.  Members of each village have made sacrifices by agreeing to donate labor and bamboo, and the additional costs of each building will be between 80,000 (just over 1,000 USD) and 112,000 taka (roughly 1,450 USD). These will become classroom buildings for 40-60 students each.

Thus far, we have raised $1,000 and need to earn another $4,300 to complete the project.  We hope to have these buildings put up as soon as possible to give the students a safe place to learn, rain or shine. Please feel free to contact me (adupont@alumni.nd.edu) or Father Subash (subashcostacsc@yahoo.com) if you have any questions.
