Another Abinta Kabir Foundation School launched in Natore

Abinta wanted to provide free education to the children from underprivileged backgrounds of our country. She wanted that the children will get the proper education to become able citizens and bring positive change in their own lives. This is one of the prime legacies of Abinta Kabir. The Abinta Kabir Foundation, since its inception, has been working towards the fulfillment of this dream of Abinta. Previously, the foundation opened 5 schools in Natore for the less privileged children.


It must be noted that Bangladesh is a developing country that is still suffering from chronic poverty and illiteracy. The poorest people in rural areas cannot find enough employment opportunities to sustain their families. This is one of the prime causes of why children from these families cannot go to school. The foundation has been working to solve this problem and has launched five schools in Natore where children are studying.


We believe that proper education will liberate these children to get out of the cycle of poverty in the future. Also, the foundation believes to educate girls, so that they can put in an equal effort like boys for the development of our land. It is our core cause to spread education and make learning accessible to them. Therefore, alongside the five schools in Natore, the foundation recently launched another girls school.


The school will educate girls from less fortunate backgrounds. Educating girls alongside boys will help our country to fulfill the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) for our country. In the future, these girls will become active citizens in the country and educate their children – the next generation and this will create a developmental cycle, which will turn our country into a developed one. The foundation aims to fulfill the legacy of Abinta Kabir through these endeavors.

Book Drive Campaign for Abinta Kabir Foundation Schools

Neil Gaiman once said, “A book is a dream you hold in your hand”. Indeed it is true that books are dreams held in our hands. A book is a world in itself. It helps to bind thoughts together, help create newer perceptions and such. A book is a treasure for anyone, especially children. Books are not the only source by which they can get educated but it is also the source that serves to inspire them to dream. At Abinta Kabir Foundation, we have launched schools to educate the less privileged children of our country. It is our motive to give them quality education so that they can grow up to be responsible citizens and bring a change to their own lives. It also is our motive to inspire them to dream and broaden their minds. Keeping respect to that, the foundation has recently organized a book drive campaign to gather books for the children.


The goal of the campaign is to gather donations of new and gently used children’s books ranging in level from kindergarten to fourth grade, of varying topics and genres. These books go directly to students at the Abinta Kabir Foundation Schools, enabling them to develop a reading habit and enjoy reading.

The book drive campaign has commenced from 1st of June, 2017 and will continue till 31st of July, 2017. Book donations are being accepted at the following locations in Dhaka:

Neonatal Incubators Donated to Dhaka Shishu Hospital

Abinta was a caring soul who thought about the children of our country. She believed that children from all the different walks of life had the potential to become great. Alongside this, she wanted to work towards the development of underprivileged children and help them lead a better life. It pained Abinta to see the death of infants due to health complications. She always wanted to avert their untimely death and promote good health of mothers.

The Abinta Kabir Foundation has been formed as a legacy to the memories and ideas of Abinta Kabir. The foundation hopes to work towards the development of children, less fortunate citizens of the country, acid victims and such. Keeping respect to this, the foundation has been working in many social endeavors. Recently, the foundation donated four neonatal incubators to the Dhaka Shishu (Children’s) Hospital.

The neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) is a specialized intensive care unit in a neonatal and children’s hospital. It specializes in the care of ill and prematurely born infants. The neonatal incubator at a NICU is used to maintain optimal environmental conditions that are suitable for a neonate or a newborn baby. It is used especially in the case of preterm births or for some babies who are born with severe health complications. A modern incubator includes a blood pressure monitor, an oxygen hood, and a ventilator. All of these aim to help the baby recover and get well soon.

At the distribution ceremony of the neonatal incubator at Dhaka Shishu Hospital, the PDGs, DG nominee and the Director of the Hospital were present. There were other staff members too and representatives of the Abinta Kabir Foundation. This donation by the foundation is only an attempt to fulfill one of the many legacies left by Abinta Kabir.
