Illiteracy has created some serious social problems in our community like child marriages, unemployment, unhygienic surroundings etc. It seems to us that the only solution to this problem is “literacy.” It can play a major role in bringing a Global Change.
A lot of people in our country are frustrated due to the lake of social responsibility of behalf of the students and other young people. If the students realize that they need to take responsibility of their communities, environment and country, they’d stand up and take actions to solve the long, lingering community problems.
We, through Active Citizens Social Action Projects, will take the initiative of helping the young people realize that Bangladesh belongs to them and that they have to take the country forward.
We performed different activities during this Social Action Project like doing surveys and courtyard meetings. We strived and have been successful in establishing an adult literacy centre where we impart knowledge amongst the adults of our society. We have not only initiated different campaigns to raise awareness about the social problems but have also educated people about the possible solutions to these issues.
After the execution of this SAP, we’ve noticed a very positive change in our communities. People have become aware about the importance of education and are beginning to attend our literacy program in large numbers.
So far, there have been almost 100 participants who have learned to read and write their names and addresses through our education program.
