Agility Bangladesh supported the Gulshan Literacy Program by setting up internet connection, donating laptops and photocopiers, and training teachers on how to administer online training programs to 500 students practicing distant learning due to COVID-19.
Since 2016, the Agility Bangladesh team has partnered with the Gulshan Literacy Program, targeting 500 unprivileged children attending local schools. Through this program, 12 Agility volunteers usually contribute their time to offer students in two different schools lessons in English, general knowledge, and computer skills. The volunteers would visit each school four hours a week over the course of three months, during the semester; and have reached more than 2,500 students since the start of the program.
The Gulshan Literacy Program is built on the principle of equal access to education for all slum-children and is dependent on donor funds. This partnership aligns with Agility’s vision of creating long-term partnerships to benefit children's lives through equal opportunity education.
