Anwar’s Diaries- Day 21st- 23rd
January 1st, 2017
This is the time of year that many of us make personal resolutions. We spent the day in Dhaka office to discuss self-improvement plan with each staff member individually. We discussed the ways to improve teamwork efficiency, communication skills, technical competency and empowerment of their creative confidence- things that are vital for the continuous growth of an organization.
Currently, following projects are running in Mohammadpur and Mirpur, in the city of Dhaka: Tutoring Center, English School, Preschools, Computer Training Center, Education for Working Children Program, NLJ Junior High School, OBAT BLS High School, Scholarship Program, Mirpur IT Center, Clean Water and Charity Programs etcetera. We are continuously trying to improve our quality, strengthen our teamwork, and build up leadership qualities among our team while setting a good example for our students. We work together to achieve the ultimate goal of spreading happiness among the forgotten people.

Once a year, the Dhaka team organizes a sports day for our students. The various schools come together for Annual Sports Day in each city/district. This allows all our students from various grades to come together and enjoy the day, out and about with their fellow classmates and teachers. Students participated in various sporting activities including racing, skipping, high and long jumps, etcetera. The winners from each event were awarded prizes.

In the morning, we felt honored to attend the book distribution ceremony at OBAT English School, Dhaka. The kids received textbooks and course books for the entire year. These were given at no cost to the students. It was a fantastic opportunity to meet with inspiring students and dedicated teachers. Students were very excited to get the new books for new class. Afterwards, our team had some great conversation with the parents who were waiting to pick up their children after the distribution.
Next, we had a very effective meeting with our partner organization, ISDCM. We had a great strategy meeting with our teams, discussing the new projects for 2017 and ways to improve our financial processes, to streamline things while increasing communication and transparency, by adopting online documentations tools.
