I completed an 8 weeks internship program at Teach for Bangladesh where I had to co-manage a class of around hundred third grade student alongside the Teaching Fellow. The experience opened my eyes to the reality of education at public schools in Bangladesh (I have studied in a private school) where most children come from lower middle background. I realized that the street children just outside the school cannot avail education in the schools as their guardians do not find public schooling relevant in their circumstance. The promise of a better life through education does not instigate them as much as an extra daily income of $6 does (acquired by street selling). This under-rooted problem in our education system, which leaves out millions of vulnerable children, inspired me to work for an informal education system for the street children, and we started by constructing tailored lesson plans delivered in an individualized manner by volunteers - thus making education more relevant for their circumstance.
