Education sector is one of the most important and ongoing programs of SDI. The literacy rate of Bangladesh is only 60%. The education rate of rural areas is not much more than the city areas. SDI works in the peri-urban and rural areas and most of the guardians of these areas are poor and marginal farmers. Due to poverty, parents could not provide necessary clothes, proper food and school fees to their children so, children can’t go to schools regularly.
