Education Initiative Background ...
Basic Development Partners (BDP) is a national Non-Government Organization (NGO) working since July 1999. It is a child and women-focused organization.
Our main objectives are education for those who can not afford to go to school or the schools are far from their locality. BDP builds schools in remote rural areas where there are no government or no schools. BDP also has some schools in the urban areas where many of the students and their families are slum dwellers.
They are very much poor as their parents are doing a casual job. We have also some co-curriculum activities in schools like raising health consciousness among the students, annual sports, discussion about the importance of several national days.
We also arrange eye camp for the students and examine their eyes and provide them with proper treatment with glass (optical), medicine if needed. Our resources are very limited.
We can not help every student for their higher education after graduation from BDP primary school. We select some bright but poor students and provide them some financial assistance to continue their higher education.
Education is a fundamental right of every human being. Bangladesh Constitution recognized this right and enjoins on the State “to adopt effective measures for removing illiteracy”. “Education is the backbone of a nation”. No development can be sustained without education. Basic Development Partners (BDP) realized this and gave the top priority.
Our students come from very low-income family and we also understand they will not be able to survive for higher education. They will be dropped out just after completion of primary chool. Because they need to work and income for themselves. So BDP arranged vocational education for them. So that they can enter into the job market as a skilled person and will be financially benefited.
