Fulfilling a Promise in Jessore, Bangladesh

As a child, Aziz dreamed of attending school. He desperately wanted to become something other than incredibly poor.

As an adult, and now on his deathbed, Aziz’s childhood dream remained unfulfilled.

Knowing the end was near, Aziz had a request of his wife Rahima, “Make sure our daughter Mutka becomes a doctor; promise me Rahima”, he said.

In life, Aziz had done everything he could for his family. In death, his thoughts were for young Mutka and her dream of attending school.

We’re working to fulfill Aziz’s dying wish and Rahima’s promise. And you can help us send children like Mutka to school.

With your help, children like Mutka will receive an education in the foundational subjects of reading, writing, and math as well as basic health and dental care, including regularly scheduled check-ups.

Health education is also provided, with a focus on hygiene and disease prevention.

In addition, daily “health breaks” ensure children receive nutritious snacks that promote learning and ensure good health.

You can help send an underprivileged child to school, provide health care, dental care, health education, and nutritious food that promotes learning and good health.

Send a child to school today.
