Hello and Welcome!
Arohon is a new charity founded by sisters Mitu & Maherunesa Khandaker, with the general aim of making the world a more awesome place to be. We're seeking to empower poor people in developing countries by providing them with the basic resources needed to climb out of poverty, and we're doing this one project at a time. We believe that by implementing improved sanitation, housing, healthcare and education, the world's most vulnerable people can finally lift themselves out of poverty. Indeed, our name, 'Arohon', is the Bengali word for 'climb'.
For our first project, we're seeking to help a grassroots organisation in Bangladesh, who have, for the past 13 years, been fighting to promote education in the rural area in which they're based. However, they need your support to be able to continue to do so. They wish to improve their library beyond a small, one-room tin building, and continue to support scholarships for children who would otherwise be forced to give up their education due to poverty. In addition to all this, they are also seeking to establish a brand new women's education centre, to empower adult women to realise that more doors are open to them than they think.Your donations will help them to achieve all of this and more, and what's more, because Arohon is working closely with the organisation, we'll be video blogging as much of the process as possible – so you can see the real impact YOUR money can make to those who really need it!
