Bangladesh – Naogoan Free School
Phase One – Estimated Cost: $145,000
The Ground floor is for the expansion of the Free School including secondary level education. Plans also include a Kindergarten for the affluent society in other regions of Naogoan, who at present have no kindergarten where they can send their children. This will generate income for the school and help sustain other projects.
Phase Two – Estimated Cost: $72,500
The First Floor is to house a computer room, a resource library, and additional classrooms.
Phase Three – Estimated Cost: $72,500
The Second floor will be a dormitory for 100 orphans and vulnerable children from remote villages and disaster prone areas. A separate dining hall and kitchen will be built to provide for the nutritional needs of the children in residence and the students and staff at the school. This floor will also house a chapel used for church services, chapel for the students, and also as a recreation hall. Discipleship programs will be held to train and raise up Christian leaders in this predominantly Muslim region.
The Naogoan Free School is located in rural northwest Bangladesh. The people who live in rural areas face debilitating poverty and many of the children have no families or adults who care for them. Some work as day laborers in local factories or elds, while others live on the streets, looking for food and sleeping wherever they can nd shelter. While the government subsidizes education, slum children are all but forgotten.
When International Needs opened the Naogoan Free School, the teachers simply invited anyone who wanted to learn to come to school. More than 250 children started attending classes. Today, there are 400 children receiving primary level education at the Naogoan Free School. Because of the school’s great success, it is now crucial to add secondary level education.
International Needs Bangladesh is seeking to move forward with the Naogoan Integrated Project by constructing a 3 story building to expand its ministry to the many families in the region.
The total cost of the project for three phases is $290,000.
