Your purchase helps us send 10 girls in Bangladesh to school and provide them with a brighter future.
Children are curious, active and full of talents - all children are. However, three million girls and boys in Bangladesh are deprived of the chance to discover and develop their skills. They are the children of the poorest families. Many children have hardly any educational opportunities. Thousands of families are living in remote areas, such as the islands and embankments of major rivers in the north of the country, and suffer from regular and severe natural disasters like floods. Here, schools are very scattered and hard to reach.
Additionally, many children are disadvantaged because they are born into poor families, belong to indigenous groups, religious minorities, or have special needs due to a physical or mental condition. These children inherit their parents’ poverty, and pass it on to the next generation themselves. At the same time, many girls are married off too early.
With support of private and public donors, NETZ and its partner organisations aim to provide equal access to quality primary and pre-school education to all children – regardless of the socio-economic situation of their families. Therefore, NETZ targets children from ultra-poor families and marginalised groups. It is about creating equal education opportunities for these girls and boys. It is about setting the foundation for a better future. NETZ sets up non-formal and formal primary schools in areas where children did not have any access to quality primary education before, and no perspective to learn how to read, write and calculate. More than 95% of those children graduate from primary school!
Per class, 30 girls and boys from villages learn Bengali, English, maths, social sciences and religion. Regular trainings and supervision qualify teachers to deal with the special educational needs these children have. Classes run six days a week. All children participate in health camps twice a year. Lunch is provided at schools during a seasonal famine-like period in November.
Become an agent of change – for a better future! With a donation of 460 Euro, Photocircle provides ten girls with the chance to go to school for a whole year.
The highlight: with every girl that can go to school thanks to private donations, NETZ guarantees that three further children will also be able to learn how to read, write and calculate. This is due to a funding commitment by the German Development Ministry.
