This fundraising page is to raise money for the education of disadvantaged children in Bangladesh, by donating to 'Helping Hand '.
Mohammad Imran Ali as his adoring students had known him, was a fantastic and dedicated kindergarten teacher, who positively impacted the lives of children all around the world in countries as diverse as Bangladesh, India,Pakistan,Singapore, the UK and Australia. Being a talented and loving teacher, Imran truly cared about children's education and so it is fitting that we can find an opportunity which allows him to continue making an impact on children's lives in the future, even after his untimely passing. We can do this by raising funds to support 'Helping Hand', a Bangladesh Charity NGO which, amongst other worthy projects, provides access to education for the disadvantaged and poor children of rural area of Bangladesh. There are a number of obstacles in the way of these poor children accessing the right to education in Bangladesh.
The project we will be supporting:
The charity is currently in the process of setting up a new school, "Angels of God School", purposely built for poor children of the rural area in Pabna district, Bangladesh. Funding is required for many different needs including: classroom buildings; solar panel system; monthly school lunch costs; teacher wages, and a host of other large and small projects with varying costs.
The school just opened last month (January 2018) thanks to Helping Hand's tireless work, but there is still much to do before it is finished! The children are currently being taught in two temporary classrooms (with cement posts, bamboo walls and grass roof). These basic facilities will be used up to the time that the main school is finished: it will initially be comprised of two classrooms, a canteen and sleeping area, with more school facilities to follow as more funding becomes available.
Financial constraints have limited the initial setup to three kindergarten classes and Primary Grade 1 class. Helping Hand intends to add a new grade each year up to primary grade 6 - to eventually accommodate a total of approximately 300 pupils. So, the funds that we raise will go towards the development of this school, and towards an increase in the number of disadvantaged children that can get an education. With our goal of USD 500 we could make a significant contribution to the development of the school, which will greatly benefit generations of Poor children.
