More than 90% people of the Sundarbans coastal region lives in the poverty line. Due to covid 19 pandemic situation many working sectors are closed as well as educational institutions. Poverty is increasing day by day in Sundarbans coastal reason. Due to their poverty, parents can hardly purchase Kerosene for their children’s education purpose. As a result, school students of the coastal areas can’t continue their basic study at night for lack of electricity.
BEDS has been trying to reduce the sufferings of the coastal people by supporting solar lamps. Now, after the distribution of the solar lamp, solar generator and solar battery, education of coastal areas school students’ has improved. More than three thousand coastal families of the Sundarbans coastal region union are now using renewable energy.
Feedbacks from the beneficiaries:
A supported school going children express his feelings ‘‘Now I am very happy. Solar lamp is blessing for me. In covid 19 pandemic situation my parents tried hardly income for our basic needs. My parents always try to give their best to educate me. But due to poverty they can hardly purchase Kerosene for my education purpose. With the support of this solar lamp, I can read at night. Some of my friends are going to drop out from schools as they can’t study at night for increased price of kerosene. I request honorable donors to help them to continue study by giving solar lights. ’’
