The aim of the project is to provide solar lamps among the Sundarbans coastal students of Bangladesh. Most of the coastal villages of Bangladesh is non-electrified and people here live below poverty level. They are unable to buy kerosene regularly so they remain in dark at night. As a result student’s education gets hampered for the lack of electricity which lead to increase the number of dropouts. But one single solar lamp can change a student’s entire life.
Number of dropout, early child marriage, anti social activities and over harvesting of the forest resources are increasing in the Sundarbans mangrove forest region of Bangladesh due to lack of education. As a result, the girls face premature pregnancy. In a word, so many social problems arise when literacy level gets down. It also creates a strong barrier to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) and Bangladesh governments RUPKALPA.
Sundarbans coastal poor community who can’t afford to buy Kerosene will get solar lamps from this project. So, the students who are at the risk of stopping their study due to lack of light; will be able continue their study continuously. So, it will help to reduce the number of dropouts and create the opportunities to build a educated society in the non electrified Sundarbans region. These solar lights will also provide safety to the villagers from disaster and wildlife.
Solar lamps help the students to continue their study. When students become educated, they become an asset for the society. They involve in social development activities. An educated man goes against the prejudice and social problems. Educated generations can change the total scenario of a society. If we support the students by providing solar lamps; we believe it will change their entire life and at the same time those educated people will become the leaders to solve all the social problems.
