Bangladesh has not always been performing well in terms of education and literacy as much of the population is still left uneducated and completely dependent on manual labour as a source of income. Consequently, illiteracy is exactly what OBHIZATRIK School is trying to tackle and eradicate completely.
OBHIZATRIK School is a sustainable initiative of OBHIZATRIK Foundation which has been inaugurated in 2013 and has been operating since, registered under Ministry of Primary and Mass Education. Ensuring quality education has been a major priority for OBHIZATRIK Foundation and thus with the introduction of this school, they will be able to get to grips with the very high illiteracy situation in Bangladesh.
OBHIZATRIK School takes complete responsibility of all the costs of running the school, thus providing full free quality education along with educational materials for underprivileged children all with the hopes of bringing out these impoverished children from the clutches of poverty in the long run so that they can recognize themselves as global citizens. Along with excellent education, OBHIZATRIK School also offers weekly medical health checkups as well as free medicine and also provides the students with nutritious food on a regular basis. It is ensured that students not only learn, but also take part in other activities as well, which is why OBHIZATRIK School hosts yearly study tours and yearly sports where students are able to have fun whilst simultaneously learn. OBHIZATRIK School recognizes the hardships the parents of these destitute students may face; with that in mind, livelihood projects are also provided with intentions to make the lives of the parents easier. To live, a man needs food, water and a sharp mind and OBHIZATRIK School identifies how education to the underprivileged youth can make a difference in Bangladesh for the better.

Where we focus in education
As Bangladesh is an overpopulated country, with a population of 165 million and a population density of 1,148/KM (as the 12 most densely populated country in the world), there is huge demand to turn its population into labour, which is why proper education for the youth is crucial. There are many children in Bangladesh who long to be able to sit in a class and educate themselves but cannot do so due to various obstacles. They are deprived from proper knowledge that they have such a thirst for. OBHIZATRIK School provides an opportunity for these students to fulfill their wants and dreams and lends out a helping hand to the families who lack the financial capabilities to send their children to school. The consequences of illiteracy are horrendous; in some cases, illiteracy may cause low self-esteem and poor self-confidence, which can lead to isolation and have drastic effects on health. In the long run, it may even result in unemployment or a very low income job. The future of Bangladesh can be very bright if the children of tomorrow are well educated which OBHIZATRIK School prioritizes extensively.
OBHIZATRIK School currently has three branches which are situated in Mirpur, Rayerbajar and Latarchar with a total of 400 students and 20 teachers.
The Latarchar branch is the latest school established by OBHIZATRIK Foundation and it is also a very special one. Before the OBHIZATRIK School had been established, the children in this village had to walk more than 5 kilometers to attend school in another village as there were no schools in their own. 90% of the children in Latarchar were deprived from the light of knowledge while 95% of the children were associated with child labour. A lack of education and a proper schooling system also resulted in women getting married very early. Looking at these dreadful conditions, after months of hard work and labour, OBHIZATRIK School was inaugurated its first permanent campus in Latarchar on February, 2019, with hopes for a better future for the children of this village. Learning has been made more accessible and convenient and immense gratitude has been received from the people in Latarchar. OBHIZATRIK Foundation looks to establish more schools for underprivileged children to provide them with a scope to learn and boost their civic engagement.
Children have many aspirations; some want to be a pilot, some want to be a doctor, and with proper education all of their dreams can be a reality. OBHIZATRIK School aims to provide the children of Bangladesh, who lack the financial capability, with a proper school education and makes it more accessible to them. Bangladesh will flourish and rise up as a beautiful nation if the children in this country are well educated. Education is the strongest weapon one can use to change the world, and OBHIZATRIK School, along with its hard working volunteers and generous donors, aims to nurture such change makers.

Emon met his gurdian
Through the Sponsorship program, Emon’s education was sponsored by Mr. Athoi Rahman. He presently provides service at a private bank. Emon studies in grade 3 of OBHIZATRIK School, Mirpur branch. Last weekend Mr. Athoi Rahman paid a visit to our school to meet Emon. He spend a while interacting with Emon, asking about his studies, hobbies etc. They became close friends. This is how; you not only can sponsor a child’s education with only 1000 tk but can also become his guardian. This 1000 tk is properly utilized for the underprivileged child’s education, food, dress, stationeries and other necessities.
