Our Objectives:

  • Provide free food and tuition, as well as free school supplies, as incentives to regularly attend school and ensure a healthy learning environment.
  • Incorporate into the curriculum, their indigenous language and culture, to promote a greater understanding of their native country.
  • Promote through education, women and children’s rights to cope with challenges they face everyday.
  • Encourage and offer vocational, technical, and second language courses so they can utilize their education in their nation as well as abroad.
  • Educate and inform people about climate change and the displacement of people world-wide.
  • Develop mitigation strategies  to limit the escalation of climate change, rising temperatures and  increased refugee populations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Women Empowerment Project

Sonamoni Project

Our proposed women empowerment program is a group of a diversity of programs from ESL and Literacy classes to vocational training and support.  Most women living in the slums do not work, and lack education or training, by supporting and assisting these women, they can empower themselves and start to change the entire community.
The Sonamoni Project is a proposed Primary School program for climate change refugees living in the urban slums of Dhaka.  Many of the children residing in these slums, chose to work hazardous jobs for minimum pay to provide for their families rather than attend school.  The families migrate from the south to the city due to coastal flooding and erosion, usually after many times of localized movement.  Though the city provides steady work, the slums are no suitable place to live or learn. By providing a safe place to learn, while supporting the children through our proposed food program, we can enable the next generation to create change.
