Education centre for the elderly people at Jessore

Title: Education centre for the elderly people at Jessore

Hamida Begum (47) always dreamt of studying in school but never had an opportunity due to family problems. She started her business as a fruit seller after her husband died. She used to face difficulty in keeping the records of her profit and loss in business. She could not use cellphone, as she did not know numbers. There were many such problems that she faced daily because of her illiteracy. Now she is free of all these. The school for the old aged enlightened her with education. ‘There is no age for learning’-with this slogan, the Jessore Info Foundation are walking ahead with this school. There are 70 women and 20 men studying in this school since last one year. It is situated at Shankarpur, Jessore. 6 volunteers teach these ‘students’ daily in two shifts. They themselves are all young and members of this organisation. The school provides its needy students with stationeries.
