Amena Khatun

“I am Amena Khatun. I am 21 and now in my second year studying for a degree in chemistry. Coming from a very poor family in the Bauniabandh slum in the Mirpur area of Dhaka city, with a younger brother and a sister, my parents could not afford to send us all to school. This opportunity was made possible by the Children’s Hope sponsorship scheme who offered financial assistance when I was 14-years-old at Kalshi school. My fate changed when Children’s Hope stepped in, now I can study as long as I want and become a doctor because Children’s Hope will bear all my educational expenses all the way. Thanks to the charity, I now have the privilege of studying in a school without worrying about paying fees.”
