Friendship

Atiqul, beside his community during crisis

With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic crisis, Atiqul, a grade 5 student of Friendship school got frightened about the spread of the disease. From school, he learned about the disease and how quickly it spreads from person to person. Atiqul also learned how to protect oneself from this virus. But he became worried as he learned that many of his friends and village people weren’t particularly bothered.

When he came to know that Union Parishad was going to launch a campaign to raise awareness about the disease, Atiqul, an avid volunteer got inspired and approached a local volunteer organization, Shandhi, to see if they could manage him a mic so he could spread what he’d learned.

With their support, Atiqul immediately started his campaign to promote the COVID-19 awareness guidelines all around the union. Many of his peers and school mates joined him in the awareness- raising campaigns in the village.

Friendship

Though these islands are fertile, the elements are also harsh. Summers are scorching, monsoons wash everything away, and winters are bone chilling without the proper shelter.

Friendship

What was once a field of brinjals, is now a pond. The entire harvest is lost, and months of effort, cost and resources are now completely lost in the worst flood in a decade.
