- Schools and education
- Time left
- 12 days to go
Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
I am Teresa ('Aunty Teresa') from Bangladesh now living in Salford and I managed to escape a life of poverty back home; today I want to every child in the villages I grew up to have access to a school.
I need your help to build a boarding school which will serve the remote villages around Ambari & Nairbari, Faridpur, Bangladesh.
It is a place where the children have literally nothing, the villages are so far apart there is no central school. The children are often left to roam on their own, left to dream, and I believe being in school is the greatest gift we can give them.
For a young girl in these villages no education can mean being sold off as a child bride; in my village a nine-year-old girl has been given as a child bride recently. You can help prevent this by supporting my effort to raise the £30,000 funds needed to build a boarding school in Naibari, Ambari, Bangladesh. This will be through the local pastor and friend Rev. Monoranjan so the £3,000 is the starting funds that we need to launch this project.
I will update you on the progress and keep going until every child in the remote villages of Bangladesh gets an education.
Every child deserves to go to school. So please help me, Aunty Teresa, to give these children in the forgotten parts of Bangladesh what they really do need. Thank you.

The broken down school location in Nairbari, Ambari is surrounded by a 2 mile radiums of homes. See Aunty Teresa's drawing below. The children in these homes have no access to any other school. We really hope you can help raise the funds with us and these will be administrated by the local pastor Reverend Monoranjan. You can see his house near the school on the drawing.

About the fundraiser
Ambari Bazar, Rangpur Division, Bangladesh
Aunty Teresa was at Mother Teresa's orphanage in Calutta after she was 'lost' in a market. Promised in marriage, Aunty arrived in England and began a better life educating herself in college. She now wants all children in her old remote village to have access to an education.
