When International Needs Bangladesh opened the Naogoan Free School, the teachers simply invited anyone who wanted to learn to come to school. More than 250 children started attending classes.

Today, there are 400 children receiving primary level education at the Naogoan Free School. This education is vital in a place where poverty leaves children vulnerable to exploitation, forced labor, abuse, and trafficking. Attending school gives children the opportunity to be children: learning, exploring, and developing friendships with schoolmates. Watch this video to learn more about the Naogoan Free School and the importance of education in a child’s life.
