Books for Asia Bangladesh: Subornogram Schools
The Asia Foundation’s Books for Asia program is the only regular book donation program in Bangladesh, and has provided more than 2 million books since the country’s independence in 1971.
Through his Subornogram Foundation, Shahed started several schools to serve these disadvantaged groups – providing river children with basic math and literacy skills, as well as basic English classes. Books for Asia has already donated several hundred books and educational materials to the Subornogram Schools.
