Till June 15, 2011 Grameen Shikkha received more than 180 million taka from 183 persons and institutions from all continents of the world to support more than 2,600 poor students.

Grameen Shikkha scholarship program is spread over all 64 districts of the country and our scholars are doing excellent in their studies. Our scholarship program has attracted wide attention all over the world. Ms. Monica Yunus, famous singer and daughter of Nobel Laureate Professor Muhammad Yunus, has donated a fund of 10.2 million taka to Grameen Shikkha Scholarship Management Program to start 150 permanent scholarships for poor students of Bangladesh. The fund came from one of Monica’s own concerts organized in the US. The Shirin Merali Foundation of the USA has recently started a scholarship program to support 200 poor girls studying in different universities of Bangladesh.
 
We are also conducting some other programs like Early Childhood Care and Development, Vocational Training Program and Non-formal Education for Slum Children in different areas of Bangladesh. We conducted a vocational training course, under our vocational training program, for Grameen Shamogree (Grameen Products) to provide training in tailoring and dressmaking to poor adolescent girls and women in Chilmari, one of the poorest and vulnerable areas in the north of Bangladesh, so that they could work in Grameen Shamogree local production centers in the area. We have also trained more than a hundred technicians of Grameen Shakti (Grameen Energy).
