Mission Statement

By helping to build the educational system and encourage the acceptance of basic primary education, we are creating a brighter future, using Bangladesh’s greatest resource - the children.

Description

There is an urgent need for primary education because education is the only sure path to sustained development and a brighter future. At CO-ID, we work on the remote Bhola Island in southern Bangladesh, the largest island in the Ganges Delta with an estimated population of over two million. This island is plagued by devastating flooding. Its people have had their homes washed away by the river, and have been forced to settle in this most inhospitable area, where even the basic necessities of the Third World do not exist. Only recently have roadways been built into the area and a power supply is still to be installed in the areas where CO-ID schools operate.
