Appeal for Bangladesh Canberra Friendship School
Let’s Work For Bangladesh (LWFB) appeals for your contribution to run Bangladesh Canberra Friendship School (BCFS) established in Char Fasson, Bhola, Bangladesh in 2010. The school has around 300 students, which is supported by community contributions mainly from Canberra.
This school (class1–5) is administered by Co-operation in Development, Australia (CO-ID) (www.fredhyde.org).
Mr Borhan Shafi (Bijoy), a member of LWFB, recently visited BCFS. During his visit, Bijoy spoke to a number of students who informed that most of these students work, after school, to support their families. Few students receive support from family towards their education. The teachers, students and the local school committee all conveyed their thanks to the sponsors for their support.
On behalf of the community, each year LWFB collects your contributions to generate $8,000, which then transfers to CO-ID to cover the running cost of BCFS. LWFB is now collecting contributions for 2012.
To cover the cost for 2012, LWFB encourages your personal or group contribution, by March 2012. Like previous years a receipt would be issued and all contributions are tax deductible in Australia. To make your contribution please use the account below:
