Nurrunnessa Girls High School is named in honour after the late mother of Mr Mohamed Tahir Ali, the founder of our school. He has chosen to name the school after his mother as she was inspiring, charitable and empowering.
The school was established in January 2016 and is currently undergoing extensive construction to make it into a clean, spacious and safe environment for young girls to learn. The school is unique in that it provides not only education and accommodation but additionally is creating work opportunities for local villagers. For example, including for those who are capable of construction work for building the physical infrastructure of the school as well as employment for teachers and assistants.
The aim of the school is to enable young girls to have access to high quality education for free and also provide accommodation for those who struggle to commute to the school. Education in Habiganj for young girls is not easily accessible. The common scenario for most girls is that they don’t have access to education. Eventually they pressured by family or society to marry at a very young age. This leaves the girls without the ability to make choices for themselves or pass on any academic abilities or guidance to their future children.
The founders and the team who are working on the school believe that no one has the right to force a young girl into a marriage with absolute no concern for their happiness or future wellbeing. Education in this particular area of Bangladesh is important as there are not many schools nearby. The fact the young girls have to travel long distances to attend school is a significant reason why children miss out on higher education. Of course, there are evidently many beneficial reasons for the school to be built and these are just a few.
