    Hundred of Smiling star at Evening School_ Conducted by Bellwoven Foundation

     
    The Bellwoven Foundation was set up 5 years ago whereby the foundation sponsors underprivileged children to have a chance of full time education. The Computer department was the next investment made by the Foundation and allows all the children to understand the world of Information Technology. The department was also set up with its own dedicated Internet service provider so that all the computers have access to the Internet and the benefits that this can offer. The Foundation also works with a number of schools around Dhaka by offering street children a chance of education and this works by offering evening classes for children who have no or little history of schooling. The Foundation with the support of the schools provides funding for the teaching, books and all necessary education material for these children. This has proven to be a massive success and is currently offering this support to over 400 children every day.

    The Foundation has plans to work with schools in the surrounding districts of Dhaka so that it can reach out to as many children as possible. Mr. Oliver Brabender is quoted in saying”We are delighted to sponsor the education of these children so that we give something genuine back to this country that has offered us so much opportunity.

    The Bellwoven Foundation is also encouraging sport for children and will be planning a major Cricket T20 School Tournament later in the year. There has been great interest in this Tournament and this will also bring more schools and children into the benefits of the vision of the Bellwoven Foundation.

    Bellwoven is a leading global manufacturer of garment accessories and has been established in Bangladesh for over 10 years.
