Solidary Contribution Provides Each Child with Lunch

What pops up on your mind when you say ‘lunch’? In our case, it is a lunch provided for children at village schools in Bangladesh. During the monitoring trip, we re-verified the importance of providing children from the poorest families with a lunch. Little schoolchildren often go to school without having a breakfast, and school lunch is their first (and sometimes the only) meal.

Dhobaura - Independence Day Celebration

The declaration of independence often means to be a culmination of nation's bloody fights for freedom. It was the same case of Bangladesh in 1971. In memory of secession from Pakistan, Bangladesh celebrates its Independence Day on March 26. There are festivities, cultural and sports events. National songs are sung, politicians are overtaken in speeches and Bangladeshi flags hang everywhere. The Dhobaura village school organized many sports activities on this Independence Day to celebrate its importance together with children, parents and teachers. Disciplines? Cock match, frog race, and chocolate race, jumping over rope or smashing pots.

And how did the participants enjoy the celebration? This will be revealed by the following photo gallery.

The Golden Thread of Bangladesh

Behind nine hills and nine rivers, where the land is close to the sea and close to the roof of the world, the "golden thread" grows. Many people went there to get rich, but only some of them managed to find it. It grows in flooded marshes where there is a damp, hot climate and a bush of mosquitoes bothering any incoming visitors. The country is famous for its lush green rice fields and hard-working people. It is a Bengali country, and no one calls the golden thread differently than...

GAYE HOLUD: The Pre-Wedding Shower

Marriage is a rare and special event, not only for the bride and groom. Family members and friends come to witness this special, unique moment when two beings come to pledge their love for each other until death do them part and become as one. Up until this point, Bangladeshi weddings are more or less the same as Czech weddings. In Bangladesh, however, weddings are preceded by a special ceremony, at the end of which the bride and groom find themselves soaked from head to toe.

Life full of tears is not for me

Irena Jindrová, Via Bona Prize finalist

We all have to play the hand we are dealt. Some were given trumps and aces; others were not that lucky. In the end, though, the most important thing is not what cards we have, but how we play them. Some people struggle with hand full of aces, whereas others play a worse hand very well. The latter include our long-time donor, this year’s Via Bona Prize finalist in the Faithful Donor category, Ms. Irena Jindrová, who suffers from cerebral palsy. During the evening ceremony, she showed us her cards.

Staying Healthy and Happy with Sports

Are you waiting with bated breath for the weather to get a little warmer so you can go out and do some sports? In Bangladesh, the weather is hot enough – currently around 34°C (93°F). But the kids don’t mind, and the Monoshapara boarding school held the popular Sports Days from 24 to 25 February 2016. Among participants were not only children and students, but also the school staff, the motto being “Sports for everyone”. There were many traditional events – 100 to 400-meter dashes, the long jump, handball or soccer tournaments, etc. – as well as non-traditional competitions – dressing in saris or climbing banana trees for boys and men, and walking with plates on their heads for girls. One of the highlights came with the costume competition, another when participants staged short scenes. You can go through the pictures and have a look at the children having fun. It’s worth seeing!

Many people in Bangladesh believe that one’s fate is inscribed on their forehead. In a way, it’s their destiny, and one can’t escape one’s destiny.

A family drama

Children sponsorship from a different point of view

Two young girls, sisters Rajina (15) and Sreety Murmu (12) are students of the eighth and sixth grades of the SAMS boarding school.
