PDAP, Literacy and Numerical Skills, Bangladesh

The proposed project involves a partnership with the Participatory Development Action (PDAP) group which was established as a NGO in 2003.

This particular initiative involves the enhancement of literacy and numerical skills of Bihari impoverished/orphaned children living in Bangladesh through the development and support of three learning centers located throughout the Bihari slum area. The enhancement and enrichment of these children‘s lives through the learning centers, involves the support for nourishment, cost of educational items such as books, chalk boards, small furniture items, in addition to teacher salaries.

This project will help children enrich their lives through obtaining education and skill sets which will allow them to utilize these skills in society to obtain good jobs in the future. Currently Bihari children, who are lacking these skill sets, are often working in the garment industry or other labour intensive tasks.
