The objective of the Pre-School Program is to build a solid educational foundation for children through a friendly and family-like environment.

Education is a fundamental right and providing access to it would change the lives of many. There are thousands of villages with non-methodological and non-systematic set-up of pre-schools in Bangladesh. Although the desire to learn is present, a structured educational system is not.

Education at the pre-school level would teach children cognitive skills, the English and Bengali alphabets, cultural and social awareness, rhymes, numbers, and coordination. These basic skills will be built upon throughout the children’s elementary education and will become the foundation for all their future learning.

There will be a maximum of 25 students per classroom with an equal ratio of boys to girls. Children from poor families and the physically impaired will be given priority. Teachers, preferably female, should be at least high school graduate.

SHEBI will supervise, monitor and evaluate the program and will help establish such schools by providing learning materials, teachers’ salaries and basic health care information. SHEBI will arrange for the training of the teachers. SHEBI expects this program will build a strong basic foundation in education among younger underprivileged children of Bangladesh.

The Scholarship Program enables underprivileged youth to attend school despite their financial restrictions. At a low cost of $75 per year, this program provides tuition, exam fees, school supplies i.e. books, pens/pencils, a school bag and uniform. Through this program, students are provided with everything needed to attend school and work towards their vocational aspirations.
SHEBI started this program with 10 students with plans to increase this number. All students are monitored regularly to ensure that they remain diligent in their schoolwork. This program reduces school drop-out rate, which is currently quite high in Bangladesh.

The Sponsorship Program takes a more involved role in the lives of the students and caters to those in more desperate circumstances. The program not only covers the cost of educational expenses for the students, but also food, clothing, and tutorship and medical care as needed. The goal of the additional support is to create a lifestyle for the students that not only allows them to live happy, healthy lives, but also free them from concerns that could hinder their educational development.


SHEBI started this program with 2 students in 2006. SHEBI expects to incorporate more students into this lifestyle/educational support system that offers direction to those at more extreme disadvantages.



Biographies of Sponsored Students-2006-2009


Shamoli Akter:  Shamoli is a 14 year old girl who lived in the Lalmatia slum in Dhaka city. She speaks English very well. Her mother works selling fish in the local market to bear the cost of supporting Shamoli, her four siblings, and her elderly husband.  One of Shamoli’s brothers is mentally disabled. Under the burdens of supporting her family, Shamoli’s mother was unable to also bear the cost of her education.  Shamoli was fortunate enough to receive the sponsorship of Seema Khan, a United States citizen of Bengali origin. Miss Khan has been sponsoring Shamoli since 2006, enabling Shamoli to study at the Grace Talitha Kumi School in Badda in Dhaka, where she is now an 8th grader.  Her teacher, Depali Kosta, takes care of her. Shamoli is extremely grateful to Seema Khan, and dreams of becoming a pilot in the future.


Denia Akter:  Denia Akter is Shamoli’s younger sister. Seema Khan found out about Denia through Shamoli, and learned that the ten year old was not going to school. Her financial sponsorship enabled Denia to be admitted into the second grade of the Grace Talitha Kumi School. Miss Khan has been sponsoring Denia since 2007.  Denia is now in the third grade, and like her sister, is being taken care of by her teacher, Depali Kosta.
