Having someone reading bedtime stories to us is one of the most cherished memories that many of us have of our childhoods. This practice not only soothes a child into sleeping but also helps to create an imaginative mind. However, for our sponsored children, their realities don't allow much room for such memories.
The children in our sponsorship program live in an environment where they struggle to get the bare minimum for living. Many don't get a basic education, let alone get the opportunity to read any other books that can help them to expand their knowledge and imagination. Like any other child, they have curious minds but they don't have any proper means to satisfy their curiosity. Instead, their minds get confined within their surroundings and are driven to join the struggle to make a living for themselves.
Do you have any new or used books laying around in your house? Instead of throwing it away, consider donating it to Shapla Foundation Library. For your convenience we have 3 locations in Dhaka where you can donate used Bangla or English children's books. You can also send the books to these address by courier.
