Education programme for street children: Bonoful

It is sad that so many children in Bangladesh do not have access to education due to financial constraints. To address this problem, Akij Foundation started the ‘Bonoful’ initiative in 2014. Bonoful is an educational programme for children from the lower socio-demographic. Initially our Bonoful started with a mobile bus that visited several areas in Dhaka. Now, over 500 Bonoful students from Uttara and Mohammadpur study at our campuses. They wear a green uniform to school and have classes from 3:00 pm to 8:00 pm following the National Curriculum (Bengali Version).
