Nature is resilient, like this water hyacinth. Washed ashore by the river's waves, it takes root, thrives, and flowers gloriously, even though it's out of its element. (Char Shidhai, Gaibandha)

Water hyacinth is considered invasive throughout the world because of its rapid growth. Native to American Basin, water hyacinth was brought to Africa in 1989 and spread worldwide later on.

Hope for the future of a child is access to education. But in the river islands, educational infrastructures are unavailable due to the nature of the lands. To help reach the light of education to their doorstep, Friendship introduced dismantlable schools which can be moved with the communities, and teachers are also picked and trained within the communities. Our strive is to help these children achieve a sustainable, bright future.
