The Education Program
The Education scheme is Abinta’s pilot and on-going scheme. A year old AKF, have gathered pearls of wisdoms to create their very own School focusing on providing quality and holistic education. Starting from donating funds for specific activities they have established AKF’s School to cater to underprivileged young girls and their holistic approach also include parents for overall development.
Abinta Kabir, a relentless champion of education being the key to future success, improved lifestyles and a stable economic enhancement of the country – was determined to ensure free education for the underprivileged children. In her own words: “I am acutely sensitive to the tremendous hardships faced by ordinary people in Bangladesh and also understand that these hardships are a result of many centuries of unplanned growth, strong prejudices and lack of education.”
AKF is carrying out those dreams by making education free and available to disadvantageous and impoverished children. The Foundation firmly believes in enhancing the lives of impoverished children, giving them a platform through which they can receive the necessary guidance to become independent, self-sufficient and productive individuals of the society. To commemorate her brilliant educational history, AKF undertook three pilot schemes in three areas:
AKF aspires to engage primarily in educational programmes with quality. It is their utmost priority because of the Founder, Abinta’s firm belief that a nation can develop positively where the citizens are educated. Education has the power to change any individual’s social and economic position. AKF take this pledge very seriously and hence their involvement in multiple educational programmes. AKF not only vows to provide quality education to the underprivileged children, but desires to have a hand in their overall development. Therefore, they also include the students’ families in their schemes.
