Education Project: Action Taken
These are some of the ways that the students in Dhanmondi Govt. Girls High School took action after they had researched the causes of and practical solutions to this issue.
These are some of the joint actions undertaken by the Hutchie and Dhanmondi girls:
They have set up a child scholarship scheme for children in Dhanmondi Girls’ School or wanting to go to the school. This scheme pays the fees, uniform and other costs of one or two children per year from a poorer background to attend the school. the sponsorship will continue until the girl has sat her crucial Secondary School Certificate Examination. As well as greatly improving her career prospects, it is hoped that the girl will become a role model in her extended family and neighbourhood and help others to see the importance of education.
