A Jashore school for special children sets an example

A school built with a personal initiative at remote Raghurampur village in Jhikargachha upazila in Jashore is doing a wonderful job as it is working to groom children with special needs with education and improve the quality of their lives.

Abdul Alim and his siblings established ‘Babar Ali Sarder School’ for children with disability and autism after their father’s name with only 10 students in 2004.

The school, which now has about 400 students, has drawn the attention of many for its contributions towards helping special children to grow well but failed to pursue the authorities to provide it some support or enlist it under Monthly Pay Order (MPO).

Talking to media, school managing committee president Abdul Alim said a tin-roofed school-house was set up in 2004 on 33 decimals of land owned by his wife.

He started collecting children with special needs growing in their families amid negligence from the upazila and nearby areas.
