Since 2005, MCF has improved the living standards in the Gawair slum area and created programs to empower children and adults through education. MCF has proven that with good quality education, the list of opportunities is endless.
School & College Program
The Foundation has identified a school in Bangladesh that meet our requirements of high quality education and good value for money. It is most important that our children get the best start possible and continue through an education, which prepares them to be able to compete internationally for university and careers.
Our children attend the Cambrian School and College. This school has been selected for their high quality standards and their dedication to develop each student at an individual level depending on their needs.
MCF currently has 121 students registered in this schools and we are constantly seeking funding to cover the costs.
Adult Education Program
We don’t currently have a formal adults education programme. However, the parents of the children are able to occasionally take part in English courses taught by volunteers and our older students. The objective here is to educate the adults from the same families whose children we are educating. This becomes part of our employment program, where we help employable adults find ethical job opportunities.
Family Support Program
We have several sad cases of single mother families or permanently disabled adults who have no potential to earn an income. But we are still determined to provide an education for their children; if we can give that one-generation a chance to escape poverty it can determine the fate of all future generations.
These families are generally supported by our visitors and volunteers, who purchase them food packages from the local market and occasionally help with rent. Some supporters, who sponsor a child with school fees also support their families.
