Alokito Shishu Foundation tries to alleviate poverty amidst marginalised rural communities in Bangladesh. We focus on quality education, life skills, and enterprise and aim for social and financial independence. Currently, we are operating a semi-formal school in Shiraajdikhan, Munshiganj in a gypsy community. They are the first generation having schooling facilities in their community. There are about 45 students leading their lives on boats where conditions are not ideal for schooling. Yet, the children along with their families aspire for higher education, so 3 full-time teachers and our team have dedicated ourselves to helping them.
