Education:

SAWAB considers that education is the most vital tool for empowering the underprivileged, disadvantaged, marginalized and illiterate population of a community. That is why, it puts due emphasis on educating the poor people for their improvement of life status.  Therefore, SAWAB has intervened in the education sector to contain further deterioration of the current situation. It promotes formal, non-formal, technical and training education for the school going students, dropouts and the illiterate adult people.

Formal Education: 

We should pay more attention for strengthening of education, particularly at the primary stage so as to provide a smooth foundation for the young segment of our population. SAWAB runs formal primary school and madrasah called JUST International School and Talimul Ummah Cader Madrasah in Dhaka City. Basic education like literacy, numeracy, social science moral education, health and hygiene awareness are imparted to the students. Besides regular academic education curricula and co-curricular activities both the school and madrasah emphasize on moral values development to help build a just society.

For this condition, SAWAB wants to spread his formal education program widely at the root level of Bangladesh. That is why international fund is required to increase its activity. You may donate to the education deprived peoples to make an educated society by giving your donation.

Non-Formal Education:

There are a number of NGO runs non-formal schools, catering mainly to the drop-outs of the government and non-government primary schools. Very few NGOs impart education for the full five-year primary education cycle. Because of this, on completion of their two-to three-year non-formal primary education in NGO-run schools, students normally re-enter into government/non-government primary schools at higher classes.

SAWAB generates non-formal school for educating underprivileged and dropout children so that they can learn the basic education like literacy, numeracy, social science, moral values, awareness on health and hygiene, basic skills in disaster preparedness which are necessary for enhancing their living status.

This type of non-formal education plays an important role in realizing the universal right to education of the underprivileged and dropout children in the slum area and to protect them from exploitative and hazardous working condition.

With your help, SAWAB is ready to spring into action and help make sure that children can gather knowledge on literacy, post literacy, alternative schooling, livelihood skill training and income generating activities.

Technical and Vocational Education and Training:

Bangladesh has gone through both social and cultural changes during the past two decades. Things were very different for the youth in the 1990s compared to now. Free access to information via the internet has changed the way we think and has helped to shape our ideas. How we utilize information has also changed drastically. The world is much more global now. But even though our access to entertainment has increased dramatically, we cannot say the same for education. Society has become very rigid when it comes to the education system.

There is more divide in the system now than there was 30 years ago. There are English-medium and Bangla-medium schools leading to college and university education, technical vocational training, non-formal education, madrassa education, etc. These systems run parallel in a country where the mind-set of people towards technical education is still negative, even though unemployment among university graduates is as high as it has been in recent memory.

A successful approach will be to identify the skills that our youth are interested in and try to focus on giving them specialized support so that they can further hone these skills to be competitive in the market. As Bangladesh moves towards becoming a middle-income country, it has been rightly recognized that skills training on demand driven trades is the key to greater economic growth.

More focus should be given on changing the perception of existing vocational training opportunities through nationwide awareness programs and advocacy. It should not be portrayed as an option for the less fortunate who can’t invest in education and, thus, opt for technical training. More students should be encouraged to think outside the box, having fewer academic degrees and more practical knowledge, so that they can be highly skilled workers or entrepreneurs who create jobs.

SAWAB is considering operating the technical and vocational education and training program for the young generation of the country. In this regards, your contribution is essential for the successful program.

We hope that you will appreciate to our initiative.
