Daughter Receives Best Student Award from School

Daughter Receives Best Student Award from School - Mother is a Brick Field Worker

Engineers ’66 The mother, Hafeeza Khatoon, is the only income-earner in the family. She works as a day laborer in a brick field, carrying bricks from the store room to the construction site. The mother, the daughter and the grandmother live in a hut which goes under inches of water every monsoon season. The daughter, Tajmira, topped the list all through primary school. She got a talent scholarship from the Government that pays tuition only. The Government also gives textbooks free. Still, when entering high school, Tajmira didn’t know what to do – they can’t even afford two meals a day, where would they find money for other things she’ll need when she goes to high school – general school fees, stationery, school dress, shoes, etc? It so happened, VAB was working with the school in her village. Through the Headmaster, she met the VAB official who was visiting the school to check how things were going. The VAB official got all the info from her, came back to Dhaka, started contacting some VAB Patrons. An expatriate Bangladeshi in Australia, Mrs. Zobeda Rahman, came through with a scholarship for Tajmira that covers all her high school costs. … In the picture, Tajmira, now a 7th Grader, is taking the best student’s award from the school’s Headmaster. Her mother was working in the brickfield at that time.
