FRED'S SCHOOLS IN BANGLADESH

Everyday life is a constant struggle here, and the basic skills that we take for granted such as learning to read and write are for the fortunate ones – not for everyone.

For 30 years our charity, Co-operation In Development, has been quietly building schools in one of the poorest areas of Bangladesh on Bhola Island in the Ganges Delta. We call our schools Fred Hyde Schools after our remarkable founder.

By helping to build the educational system and encourage the acceptance of basic primary education, we are creating a brighter future, using Bangladesh’s greatest resource – the children.
