We’re not Beyoncé and Shakira, but if you’re able to forgive us that and are still interested in seeing what we’ve been up to and how this project has developed over the past year, feel free to have a look at the pictures below.
Sonargon (Sonarga) site visits
These pictures were taken by us during our several visits to see Shahed Kayes and the schools of the Subornogram Foundation. We are confident that you’ll notice that there is certainly a need for some work to be done! Please also note the ever-smiling faces of the students!
All Bangladesh donations will be going to the communities and children you see in these pictures.
Solmaid site visits
These pictures are all taken in the slum area of Bashundhara, Dhaka, the site for the Solmaid Community School, due to be launched in July 2012.
All international donations will be going to ensure the long-term viability of the program through books and equipment, teacher training and site rental.
In early February, we set out along the road from Dhaka to the Indian border to get an idea of where we’d be running. It took us 17 hours by car and ferry to cover our 580 km road trip – may have been quicker running.
Running in Bangladesh
We’ve been training since June 2011 for this and running, like everything else in Dhaka, is never boring! Never know what you’re going to see, who you’re going to meet or where you’re going to end up.
