The journey started with the sole reason of helping underprivileged children to have quality education, who were otherwise in the grasp of child labor for the sustenance of their family. In the year 2010, the idea matured into reality, with 4 selfless individuals. This year, we have successfully commemorated 12 years of our expedition.
A 2 week-long festival, to celebrate the juveniles of our country in honor of OBHIZATRIK Foundation’s 12 years commemoration was held starting from 10th September up until 24th September. We arranged an integrated approach of creating awareness through various events and competitions. The competitions included: Online Photography Contest, Inter NGO and NPO School Art Contest, Story Telling through the eyes of our Youths, Sustainable Project Idea Innovation and Library Inauguration.
We concluded the festival, with a grand closing ceremony on 24th September at BICC with our sponsors, donors, beneficiaries and our students.
On the closing ceremony, we arranged a cultural segment for our students to perform and showcase their skills and learning.
The program was inaugurated by our President, Ahmed Imtiaz Jami.
He introduced our sustainable projects that includes: OBHIZATRIK SCHOOL, Shokkhom, Boat Ambulance, Food Hanger in collaboration with Daraz Cares etc.
At present our school provides quality education to over 600 underprivileged children. Our Shokkhom project has helped over 1200 beneficiaries to acquire financial solvency. The boat ambulance has helped 20,000 who were in dire need in Charlata. Food Hanger project has been installed in 30 different locations to provide free food to the underprivileged population all around Dhaka.
During the entire span of the global pandemic, OBHIZATRIK Foundation has stood beside 12 lac people.
The event was attended by the representative from all of our corporate donor, individual donors and international donors. Representative from more than 20+ NGOs and iNGOs were present during our event.
