LET ‘S TALK ABOUT US

CDIP is currently supporting 1.5(One & Half) lac poor families with credit facilities and 60,000 disadvantages children with home tutoring services in 18 districts of Bangladesh.

Bangladesh is one of the most densely populated countries where a big majority of the people lives in rural areas. Further, a significant portion of this rural population live under poverty and had been suffering from malnutrition, diseases, illiteracy, dropouts of school children and many other vices. Dropout of children from school is, in fact, the major barrier to eradicate illiteracy from the society in Bangladesh.
Despite huge enrolment of children in the elementary classes, it has been observed in the last few years that only half of the enrolled students sit for exams to pass the fifth grade. As a result, a lot of kids are dropping out of schools and act as an obstacle towards the development of the society and the nation as a whole. We have to get ourselves out of this curse which is dropping out of school.
Among many reasons of dropout of children from school, the poverty of parents is the prime one. This is a common sight that while some children are inside schools, many are playing without attending schools. When spoken to a few of them, they have expressed their reluctance to go to schools. The reason came very clear. Initially they joined school with a lot of eagerness. They were also very enthusiastic about the new environment, new friends and the fact that they have started schooling together. But as each class contains a huge number of students, accommodation and seating arrangement is inadequate, chaotic class environment, etc, make the teachers engage more in managing the uncontrollable children rather than to complete the lessons in the schools. The teachers are sometimes seen going from one end of the classroom to the other end with a stick in their hands, just to maintain a congenial teaching environment. All these add up to a child not getting the proper education that they should receive from the school. Teachers end up giving a lot of homework. Where the parents of these kids are illiterate, which is mostly common amongst the poor, it is almost impossible for them to get any support at home. Read more…
