Using innovative techniques, we establish schools in remote communities where there are no government schools.
How we operate
Classes are held in pre-fabricated buildings
Our schools are housed in pre-fabricated buildings which are easily dismantled and relocated in the event of a natural disaster, allowing children to resume their education quickly after the crisis.
Solar panels are used to generate electricity
There is no electricity supply in the remote communities where we work, an issue we remedy by installing solar panels where required. Currently 10 secondary classrooms operate using solar panels to generate electricity for TV monitors.
Video lessons enable children to continue their studies
We face the challenge of finding qualified local secondary school teachers. Our solution is to project pre-recorded lessons on TV monitors for the children to follow. Experienced teachers from nationally renowned schools record lessons in our Dhaka studio, enabling students in remote Char areas to benefit from the same quality education as those on the mainland.
A portable school library
A portable library is made available to schools and student. Every two weeks, the books are rotated from one school to another giving the children the opportunity to borrow and read the books.
School Gardening and Tree Plantation
Friendship’s Primary Schools have begun a school gardening and tree plantation movement. Children, teachers and parents alike are all highly enthusiastic towards this particularly encouraging initiative.
DigiSIS software is used to track students’ progress
Our schools are equipped with tablet computers to keep students’ records through a Digital School Information System (DigiSIS). DigiSIS is a complete Student Management integrated software application that spans across all functional requirements of a school, including student admission, attendance and examinations.
