Bashundhara Special Children Foundation (BSCF) has initiated a distant learning programme for differently abled children from underprivileged families amid the coronavirus situation in the country.

Parents of most of the children are poor. They earn their living doing low-income-job or petty business. They earn an insignificant amount of money by pulling rickshaw or doing job of day laborer.

The parents of the children never imagined to avail such a modern facilities of distant learning for their kids. Bashundhara Group Chairman Ahmed Akbar Sobhan is patronizing the programme while BSCF Chairperson Yeasha Sobhan is supervising the overall activities of the programme.

Earlier in April this year, the BSCF students started their online classes, though many other renowned institutions introduced their remote learning programme later in May-June 2020.

The students sit for examinations online. They also attend assembly, class-party and other curricular activities virtually. Teachers upload audio visual contents for their homework on group.  Parents and guardians have also been trained how to use digital platform so that they can help their kids get access to education online.
