When Fahimul was a child, he was shocked to see children his age begging in a train station. Ever since that moment, he aimed to advance the right to education for disadvantaged children. Fahimul founded an organization called “Holy Child Care” which strives to ensure primary education for all children. The organization works to encourage parents to send their children to school, they also provide scholarships to disadvantaged children. To raise money for the scholarships, Fahimul goes door-to-door to collect donations. Fahimul also teaches children literacy skills. To date, he has helped 107 children to be able to write their own name. When not advocating for the right to education, Fahimul supports the disadvantaged through distributing rice and winter clothes. His dream is to establish a free school to ensure primary education for all disadvantaged and street children.
