Life Related Education

 The socio-economic reality of the country sometimes compels some of the guardians of the rural areas not to send their wards to school. Considering the need for a future educated vanguard and to support the MDG efforts of the government Masjid Council initiated a project for the youngsters of 6-10 years who either could not attend school or have been dropped out at early stage. The learners are provided with formal education texts such as Bengali, English and Math. In order to promote the morality of the learners they are also given some religious teachings. The duration of the course is three years. The Imams act as the teachers of the centers and local mosques are used as learning centers. The approach represents a special feature that community resources such as mosques and Imams could be used for national development. Since the education approach of these centers focus on the practical aspects of life and livelihood, that’s why these centers are branded as Life Related Education (LRE) Center.
