“Child of a Broken Family Now Thinks About
Bringing Hope in Society”

group. She was born on 3rd January, 2005 in village Santahar, Bogra.
Her father’s name is Johirul Islam who left her and her mother and
got married to another woman. Her father is not interested in
looking after them.
Mst. Ria is the only daughter of her mother and father. Her mother’s
name is Mst Rita. She went through a very tough situation after the
birth of Ria. Rita used to do various kinds of households work. By
this time Ria grew up and came to an age for education. Ashulia is a
rural area but here there are many industries. That’s why Rita came
to this area to seek work in industry two months ago. She found a
job in Rahman Garments as a helper. By this time luckily our
project’s survey team reached her house and she felt very interested
to send her daughter to our school. Her thinking is only about Ria’s
proper education. Rita dreams that her daughter will bring hope in
society. There was a school near her house where the tuition fees
were quite high so it was impossible for her to admit her daughter
in that school. Mst. Rita is getting monthly 4000/= BDT (four
thousand taka only) from her work place. This is really very hard to
Ria stays with her mother in a tin shed rented house. Rita needs to
pay monthly 1200/= BDT (twelve hundred taka). Ria’s health condition
is average. Ria is now very encouraged and she wants to be a doctor.
She wants to serve poor people free of charge.
Her class teacher Ms. Rupaly mentioned that Ria is very talented,
punctual and attentive in studies. Ria’s understanding is very good.
Besides teaching, the school provides lunch. Student doesn’t needs
to buy any notebook, pencil, eraser and others instruments from
outside. The student’s school uniform sets are also provided by the
school free of cost. Ria needs only a way to ensure her proper
education for future.
Ria is very happy to be a student of the Ashulia School of HOPE. Not
only she but her mother also feels so. Her mother now can see dreams
with her daughter. Her mother said that she doesn’t have any words
to express her gratitude to the Ashulia School of HOPE. Rita and Ria
both are encouraged. Mother and daughter both can now see dreams
about a bright future with great hope.
