How IPDC’s CSR Initiative, “Ucchash School” helps Remote Communities

Ucchash school provides education free of cost to 50 children in Sonpocha char, a small river island in Bogra. Partnering with AMAL Foundation, the school provides free nutritious food and necessary study materials for the students

Ucchash School, initiated by AMAL Foundation, partners with IPDC, in 2018, works at Sonpocha char in remote Bagura. Sonpocha is a small river island in the Karatoya river, located around 50KM away from Bagura Zilla. With no roads or electricity and a population of ten thousand primarily involved in farming, most girls get married off even before reaching adulthood resulting in several neglected diseases in young women. The school is working with 50 students and provides free study materials and nutritious food with a view to eliminate child marriage, dowry, and to build awareness in the community.

The school is occupied with ample space for physical activities and education. Here teachers are handsomely paid and they are motivated in the class. From time to time, food and special care are provided to these children for their better growth. Also, every celebration like Eid, and Boishakh is celebrated with new clothes and goodies by IPDC. Each awardee receives monthly support for tuition fees and an annual grant for study materials, books, and uniforms.

In an interview with CSR Window Afifa Sultana, Assistant Manager, Brand and Corporate Communications says, “We are encouraging education in remote areas and making children habituated with formal schooling and empowering females by employing them as teachers.”

IPDC is working with Ucchash School to provide access and quality education to remotest areas of the country. For more inspiring CSR stories shared by corporates, check out our Youtube Channel.
