Education is a powerful driver of development and one of the strongest instruments for reducing poverty and boosting shared prosperity. When children go to school and learn, they create opportunities, transforming and empowering their lives and their communities.
Bangladesh has one of the world’s largest primary education system, however, the quality of education provided – monitoring and quality of the teachers in still a challenge for this developing country in South Asia. It must be noted that Education is one of the MILLENNIUM DEVELOPMENT GOAL of Bangladesh, and we are yet to perform enough to ensure us meeting the objectives set for the year 2015.
Education is one of the biggest priorities for the RISE Society and we look forward to invest more time to research its development alternatives and scope. One of the most important factors which we discovered through one of our projects, and which can be mentioned here, would be “accountability” in government, NGO or International Body funded education projects outside the urban settings of the country.
While within the urban structure, poverty, family challenges and pressing circumstances keep forcing children on to streets and into the jaws of abuse. The RISE Society is closely analyzing the effectiveness of self financed and self sustainable street schools within the urban, rural and indigenous settings.
The need to ensure literacy for sustainable development, awareness and progress towards social equity cannot be emphasized enough to explain its importance. The world and every like minded individual and group must stand together and fight this social disparity together in arms.
On April 18, 2013, a Learning for All Ministerial meeting will bring together ministers of finance and education — from Bangladesh, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Haiti, India, Nigeria, Yemen, and South Sudan — with leaders from development partner organizations to discuss challenges and steps to accelerate progress toward ensuring that all children can go to school and learn.
