Illiteracy is a matter of concern for a country like Bangladesh with such a huge population. People living in the rural areas are mostly illiterate and are even devoid of any knowledge on literacy. These people do not have enough money to educate themselves and choose the option of staying illiterate throughout their lives. This was one of the primary concerns of Touching Souls International and we thought awareness is the first step that we should take. Education is one of the primary pillars of our life that instills a confident personality within us.
The next step was to build a school in the village and ensure that they have all the facilities for the students. We wanted the best education to be imparted in that school. The teachers we selected were from the village itself whose disability had separated them from the society. Some of these teacher probably has the best knowledge in Mathematics but did not get an opportunity to use his skills due to his disability.
We did not want any kids to miss out their chance to attend the classes. Apart from education, we also put emphasis on their participation in games and arranged for sports day in the schools. The parents co-operated with us in the projects by sending the kids to school regularly and by making them participate in games.
The school projects of Touching Souls International are one of the most successful projects of this non-profit organization. We believe in imparting quality education to the disadvantaged village kids of and want to emphasize that money cannot always be a hindrance in the path of education.
