In the capital of Bangladesh, Dhaka, when a group of children leave their homes every morning to go to school, another group of children come out onto the streets, to work for a livelihood. The streets to them represent an opportunity to earn a living. Some of these children collect garbage, others sell various items - Flower, tea and cigarettes included among them.

While on my way to office, I regularly noticed some children searching for something in the garbage heap. I felt that perhaps they were searching for a dream.

Wanting to do something for these children, I discussed with my friends and colleagues as to what we could do. At first, it was decided that once a week, we would provide these children with a meal and then take them for a fun outing somewhere nearby. Then we talked about education need to them & they realize. We make our first education under a tree in a nearby park.

A school under a tree

In order to start a formal school, one needs many things - a school building, classrooms, books, notebooks, teachers, blackboards, dusters and students. However, for this school, all these conditions could not be fulfilled. Nevertheless, every Saturday, classes were held under a tree in the park. Children left their work and came to attend the classes, though it meant loss of earnings for them. They enjoyed these classes thoroughly. And we try to provide some financial benefit if they come and join to our school under a green wood tree. Gradually, the number of students began to increase. And soon, there emerged the need to find a classroom.

The school gets a new address

The school was moved out of park and housed in Mirpur-1, Dhaka, where a room was taken on rent for running the school. Here, the school was open five days a week and students started attending classes regularly. The school started with 30 students and 2 teachers. As more children from disadvantaged families, from nearby slums joined the classes, the number of students continued to increase.

“Education Hope” is a non-profit organization was founded in 2012 with a view to improve the educational and health conditions of the underprivileged children in our country.

Most of us take for granted the basic necessities of life: food, water, shelter, health, education and family. But there are millions of children in our country who do not have these essential necessities, who do not have any hope for the future. our goal is to help provide these necessities for impoverished children throughout the country and focus on integral development that seeks to reduce the root causes of poverty.

The vision of "Education Hope" is a poverty - free & educated Bangladesh. They have started their journey with this vision, knowing fully well that they have a long way to go.
