Razzak is now in class 9! Well, even 5 years back, he used to roam around in the streets without going to school. Education was like a dream to him. Now his life has changed completely, he is a happy student adept in subjects such as Bengali, Math and Science. This was all possible, thanks to the scholarships and free education up to high school level offered through charity of Touching Souls International. We have a scholarship scheme for the purpose of helping students from the backward sections with their schooling and education. The scholarships and sponsorships are available for students who are studying between 5th and 12th standards.
The main aim of the education aid and scholarships is to help brilliant students excel in their path of study. Our objective is very simple- no meritorious student from the backward section should lose his or her education due to financial constraints. By judging the performances of the students in the basic level, the type of scholarship is decided upon. Other factors like the family income, the standard of living, the monthly income and so on are also determined.
Furthermore, in an endeavor to improve the education system of Bangladesh, Touching Souls International, the nonprofit organization have a school funding program. Under the program, school in the Kishoregang and Munshiganz villages have been provided with financial and other forms of aid. Mention here needs to be made of Minhaz Quddus Fizu, who recently left for his heaven abode. Minhaz Quddus was an icon in the establishment of a High School in Banail and had actively participated in the funding programs.
Under the school funding programs, aid is provided on a regular basis for the overall maintenance and improvement purposes. The school administration details us with the needs and accordingly the funding is made. We also supervise the day to day functions of the schools and keep track of whether the right education is being imparted to poor students.
