It was a long unfulfilled dream of mine to help Bangladeshi students in their education until I came to know about Grameen Shikkh. I was able to transform my dream into a reality with the help of Grameen Shikkha three years back and started scholarships for students.
 
My heart felt gratitude to all the staff of Grameen Shikkha for helping me to fulfil my dream. Grameen Shikkha is providing an opportunity to the Bangladeshis’ all over the world to help students in Bangladesh.

Setting up a scholarship with Grameen Shikkha has been the best investment of my Zakat that I have ever made.  I believe in the cause for educating girls because I truly believe that I would not be the person that I am today had my grandparents chosen not to educate my mother.  Even though both of my grandparents were orphans themselves, they were not compromising the education of their 10 sons and daughters.  Grameen Shikkha is a good institution dedicated to the education of the poor, and I encourage all non-residents Bengalis to set up a scholarship with Grameen Shikkha.  No girl in Bangladesh should have to stop attending school because her family cannot afford it.

Born and brought up in rural Bangladesh. An engineer by profession, arrived in North America, in the early seventies and have made Canada home ever since.

Believing the gift of education to be the most valuable and the sturdiest of gifts one human being can give to another, have participated in the Grameen Shikkha Scholarship Management Program for the last few years.

Would encourage each and every Bangladeshi who has the ability, to extend a helping hand to a  needy Bangladeshi child to receive education and develop into a worthy human being and citizen rather than wither away in futility and defeat.

Dear students of the Scholarship Program,

I am very glad (and a little proud!) of your results.  Please, study, and study more, because the future of your country is in your hands.

You have the luck of being under the supervision of Professor Yunus, who is loved all over the world by honest people.

I have been a teacher, I have been teaching Science for many decades, and I know that the most engaged of my students, those who had the passion and the curiosity of learning how our world works (at least, the curiosity of trying to understand how our world works), are now not only clever people in their professions, but also good and honest citizens. And God knows how much we need, in every of our countries, good and honest citizens !

My best wishes to you, to your teachers, and to all the people engaged in the Scholarship Program.

In the summer of 2003, I interned with the Grameen Bank in Bangladesh, where I had the privilege of meeting a young boy named Saddam.  At the time, Saddam could not attend school. As a result of difficult family circumstances, Saddam, at age 10, was the sole provider for his family.  To keep his family afloat, Saddam served as a tea boy and sold pittal outside a local Grameen office.  Despite the hardship of his youth, or perhaps because of it, Saddam displayed wisdom beyond his years, and extraordinary empathy towards his peers and younger brother.   Nevertheless, because his family was poor, Saddam was treated as second class.  Having observed Saddam's potential, and the injustice of his position, I put aside part of my own scholarship income, and raised funds among friends and family to provide Saddam with a Grameen scholarship.
 
With the additional income he received from the scholarship, Saddam was able to reduce his work hours, and attend school.  Despite the gaps in his early education, Saddam rose to the top of his class in secular studies.   I h hope that Saddam will remain devoted to his studies so that in the long term, he will be able to pursue higher education and job opportunities that would enable him to lift his family out of poverty and give back to his community.
