Shaheed Mizanur Rahman Obaitanik Naisha Biddyalaya (free night school) was founded in August last year. The school was named after freedom fighter Mizanur of Atia village in Delduar, who was killed by the Pakistan Army on December 12, 1971

A group of five people, who either completed their master's degree or are currently students, have been volunteering to operate a free night school that helps poor primary school students with their studies in Delduar upazila of Tangail.

Shaheed Mizanur Rahman Obaitanik Naisha Biddyalaya (free night school) was founded in August last year. The school was named after freedom fighter Mizanur of Atia village in Delduar, who was killed by the Pakistan Army on December 12, 1971.

Ratri, Kona, Rumana, Sabiya, and 66 others from local primary schools attend the night school to get help with their regular homeworks, and other studies. The teachers of the night school said the parents of these students  cannot help their kids with studies. As this may increase the dropout rate in local schools, their night school is helping out in this regard.

Obaidul Islam, Shujan, Piyar Ali, Asif, and Zahid Khan are currently teaching the students of up to class five in their school. They are thinking of enrolling students up to class 10 in future.

Obaidul completed his MBA from a university in London, Zahid has completed his BA, Shujan is currently an undergraduate student, whereas Asif, and Piyar are students in the master's program.

Zahid said: "We are collaborating together to run the school. Sometimes free books, and other school supplies are provided to our students. We are looking to relocate our school to a permanent location as there are some problems at rented places."

Mir Shafayet Hossain Shiplu, the office secretary of the school managing committee, said: "The school activities could be held more efficiently if we get support from the government, and non-government organizations. 

"The idea of opening up a night school came to our mind while we were on a friends’ hangout. In future we are planning to teach the elders in our school."

The students of  the night school said they are happy to get enrolled in it, as they could learn an assortment of things.

The parents of the students praised the initiative of the free night school, and said they hope the school will one day be operated in a large scale with significant success. Locals said the school is contributing in decreasing the rate of dropout. 

When the school opened in Tangail, the Deputy Commissioner Md Mahbub Hossain visited the place, and donated two tonnes of rice.
