A new preschool in Sirajganj

We were delighted this week to open a new preschool alongside one of the Hathay Bunano production centres in Sirajganj. The school has been funded by Danny Whiteside, a teacher from the UK who raised money through long distance cycling. Danny came to visit and volunteer with HBPS a few years ago and has stayed in touch ever since. With his generous donation we were able to arrange to rent a building from the local community alongside our existing production centre, to repair the building and then buy all the necessary books and supplies for the school including the lovely tables and chairs. Danny’s donation also partially pays the first years salary for the teacher along with the whole of the first years rent for the building. Thereafter, HBPS will continue to fund the running of the school. The preschool is for children of the women who work with HBPS and they are ages 3 – 6 years and after that we help them get into the local Government schools.

There were so many great photos from the inauguration event that we’ve put a few of them into a video. I hope you enjoy this as much as we have.
