Only a third of women in Bangladesh can read and write. Almost three million children don’t receive any education, and the majority of these are girls.
As a result, it’s very difficult for women to escape the cycle of poverty.
Problems with schools
Even for the children who do go to school, there are many problems. Most schools are completely overcrowded. Drop-out rates are very high; only about a third of children who start primary school actually finish it. Most teachers are overworked and lack proper training.
We need your help
With your support, we’ll be able to continue our work with education in Bangladesh. The project will be expanded to include more schools. We plan to increase the number of female members in the school management committees.
