Children are the future of a country and that is the reason why more time and energy should be devoted in bringing up every child. There are several small and large things that can be done to help each child live a life that would be productive and beneficial for the future of the country. Making life worth for every child living on this earth is something that can be achieved quite easily provided we have the heart to do so. Touching Souls International believes that the desired changes in the lives of such children will come only when more and more privileged people start participating proactively in finding a solution.
The nonprofit organization also believes that the only way to ensure a better future for these children is by educating them. That is because education both empowers and evolves them in becoming better citizens. Education helps a child to learn lifetime skills, build character, inculcate values and become responsible members of the society. Children should be educated in a way that would help them to become worthy citizens and make a better society.
Education gives them knowledge, skills and power to create their own paths to success and self-actualization. Without proper education they would not be able to face the challenges that life might throw up at them. Education combined with good health and right environment help children to overcome the cycle of poverty become strong in mind, body and spirit. This gradually helps them to bring in durable changes for themselves, their families and their communities. The only thing they need is a little help to get there. Empowering lives through education and environment can propel children for better future.
There are many young children in Bangladesh who have been abandoned or left without shelter due to natural disaster or suffer from critical illness or disability. It is indeed heartbreaking to see these children go through this pain. Touching Souls International, with an aims to save the lives of these innocent children, is running medical camps, where these children are provided with free treatments and surgeries on ailments like cleft lip, club foot and many others.
In a country where children fight for survival everyday with issues like hunger, clothing and shelter and books can never be the priority. Their dream for education cannot even be encouraged due of lack of money and infrastructure. Touching Souls International is dedicated for these underprivileged children by providing them with basic needs, health care, education and skills necessary to give them a better life and transform them into responsible citizens.
This non-profit organization is running 2 schools – one in Halishahar, Chittagong that educates 130 slum kids up to seventh grade and another in Banail, Kishoregonj that teaches 225 students up to high school level. The schools are built in environments that support learning. Students are also provided with daily lunch along with health-care services and family support programs. Touching Souls International offers scholarships to meritorious orphans and poor students of grade 5 to 12, who are unable to pay their fees.
Touching Souls International, with their charity works, is helping village and slum kids to discover their own ability and encouraging them to find what they are good at, which would help them become more productive members of the society and therefore the country. The organization underlines the fact that charity is not simply a matter of dispersing money but of making a deep, long-term commitment and casting a hard eye on results..
