“Due to my mother, my incredible role model, I value trust, determination, gratitude, respect, and open mindedness; therefore, my purpose in life is to become successful, hardworking, and accepting, but at the same time care for those around me and appreciate the fortunate life I live. This is the case for me because growing up I always looked up to my mother and the many things she went through and accomplished while raising me.”
These are the words of Abinta Kabir, written in one of her college essays about her role model, her Maa.
For Abinta, the role of the single most important woman in her life was tremendous. It was from her mother that she learned life’s most essential ideals and skills, from the basic learning of tying her shoe laces to being able to justify the difference between right and wrong.
Abinta Kabir Foundation School, which started in 2017, has therefore been established based on the ideals that Abinta, herself, possessed. The significant life of a woman, her Maa, influenced Abinta in a great manner, and that instilled in Abinta the belief that for the proper growth of a child and for a greater future, the mother of the child must be well-educated. To add value to her moral perception and to shape Abinta’s noble belief into reality, the school emerged to educate the girls who come from less-privileged backgrounds.
In the school, the students are not only receiving top-quality education, but also getting the opportunity to explore their multiple intelligences. They are taught through activity-based lessons, which help to enhance their creative potentials, and their teachers receive regular trainings to develop their pedagogical abilities. Additionally, there are dancing and singing lessons, along with arts and crafts. A huge collection of diverse storybooks are available for them in the well-stocked school library. A multimedia room ensures that they can watch educational videos to supplement the learning in the classroom. A newly launched computer lab will ensure that the girls will have computing knowledge from Class 1. Along with these facilities, students receive a daily nutritious meal and a monthly free health checkup.
These services are being provided to the students to give them a chance to transform their futures. Each of the girls dream of becoming successful teachers, doctors and business individuals when they grow up, and so Abinta Kabir Foundation School is striving to provide the best quality educational experience so that the girls can be empowered to fulfill their dreams, one day making Bangladesh a better place to live in, just like their dear Abinta Apu wanted.
