MMJF Donates 200k BDT for Girls' College Education

We are immensely pleased to share an exciting news on foundation activities. On Oct 27, 2016, our volunteers Md. Abdullahil Shafi (BUET), Hasanul Islam (BUET), Montasir Dipto (KUET) visit the Comrade Ratan Sen Collegiate Girls' School located at Domra, Rupsha, Khulna to transfer a donation of 2,00,000 Bangladeshi Taka (2,591 USD) in order to help its infrastructure development on college extension. Our team was also invited by the school Chairman S. M. Liaquat Hossain to experience its education history and system, growth and success, present condition, and future plan. Since its foundation date, Manush Manusher Jonyo Foundation (MMJF) wanted to work on sustainable programs that could help underprivileged and meritorious students so that they can hold their dreams, their family dreams. We also wish to focus to work for girls, especially in rural area like Rupsha in Khulna where girls get married in their teenage with no or only school level education. To break this hurdle, we wanted toleverage continuous efforts by Ratan Sen Girls' School by extending it to the college level so that these girls one day can make a big change for the society and become a great example for the region, country and world. We thank Zulfiqur Hossain Bakul bhai, founding partner of the school and founder of New York based foundation, Inspiration Bangladesh to introduce us this school. It was a big opportunity for us to put in effort and contribute to development of rural girl students. MMJF appreciates and thanks its donors as they come forward to make a big change.
