Scholarships Awarded to Bangladesh Students


Jaigeer, Bangladesh -
The International Relief Friendship Foundation held its scholarship presentation ceremony for the students of the Jaigeer and Utter Bakchar Primary Schools who were receiving scholarships from Supporting Success. The event was held at the Jaigeer Peace Center of the Jaigeer School, about 30 km from the capital, Dhaka.

More than 200 students, guests, government officials and local residents attended the ceremony. The chief guest was the renowned lawyer and social worker, Advocate Aftab Hossain, and the Master of Ceremonies was the Assistant Head Teacher Shamsul Huq. During the ceremony, one student representative of the scholarship recipients, one guardian, and teachers of each school gave a speech expressing their gratitude for the scholarships and the impact they are having on the local children.

This is the third year that IRFF has provided scholarships to children from the villages of Jaigeer and Utter Bakchar, allowing them to continue their studies into high school. In total, 30 local children are now having all of their expenses for school covered and are going to have the opportunity to finish high school, a rare thing in the rural areas of Bangladesh. Many of these students would not be able to attend school beyond the fifth grade without the support of IRFF’s program and their lives have been changed as a result.Thank you to all of you who donated so generously to Supporting Success for making this a reality for them.
