Apart from these projects, Grow Your Reader Foundation (GYRF) annually organizes different community mobilization projects to empower children from all social classes. This program includes:
“Connecting Our Worlds Through Our Cultures” is a project for promoting intercultural dialogue among young people by sharing the cultures of countries via a cultural exchange program to create their own identity. Grow Your Reader Foundation (GYRF) from Bangladesh and African Youth Writers Organization (AYWO) from Ghana are collaborating to ensure that children in Bangladesh and Ghana would be able to learn and unlearn about each other’s worlds; by challenging misconceptions and embracing diversity. The worldview of children and participants would be enriched with new information and experiences at the end of this 6-week long project. We are promoting world unity and tolerance through this project since we think that we are being more resistant to accepting diversity rather than appreciating it day by day.
This problem is visible more in lower economic strata. So this project is working for SDGs 3, 4, 16, and 17.
In our piloting 22 children from GYRF after-school program at Jashore, Bangladesh, and 30 children from AYWO Ghana participated.
We hope to extend the program to a bigger platform by bringing together 5 or more countries across the continent to strengthen intercultural dialogue among young people.
In the coming years, we anticipate having a vibrant sustainable project that would pull together more organizations in the literacy space to collaborate, partner, and exchange ideas to better the reading skills of children in low-income areas and promote unity and tolerance.
An event “আমরাও পারি বদলে দিতে বিশ্বকে” for special children with physical disabilities,
children from upper and lower economic class to ensure inclusiveness to break the social stigma thus helped to boost up the confidence of the special children.
Grow Your Reader Foundation is an organization which works for ensuring quality education among children having own created curriculum, teachers’ training facilities and library stations.
