Boarding schools are larger and better equipped than village schools, and provide accommodation for its students. There are about 200 to 800 children at a boarding school. Children can study there up to 12th grade when they do a state exam (similar to A-levels). Afterwards, they can continue studying at some university. Through the BanglaKids program, donors can support students at one university.
At the school grounds, there is usually some farming land where schools grow fruits and vegetables, or where they keep fish and breed cows. Such activities reduce operating costs and increase the school’s self-sufficiency. Teachers and their families live at the school grounds as well.
