–Mizanur Rahman

Mizanur Rahman (age 11) comes from a extremly poor family of four children (two boys and two girls) in Feni district, Bangladesh. Mizanur was only six years old when he lost his father. The money that his mother made cleaning houses was not enough to support Mizanur and his three siblings. “The only thing that he left for us is the house that we are living in now,” Mizanur’s mother says of their situation, “but there was no actual income source.” Times were very difficult for them, and the situation was not favorable for Mizanur to start his education. He needed help for his school supplies and other necessities. DCI field workers submitted Mizanur’s case immediately, believing that he needed support.

DCI brought him immediately into the Sun Child Sponsorship Program. After enrollment in the program, mizanurrahman2Mizanur received various type of support like educational materials, hygiene materials and other household necessities that his family cannot provide on their own. “I had no financial ability to provide education related materials,” says Mizanur’s mother. DCI also provided Mizanur after-school tutoring, so that he can achieve quality education and health education.

Now Mizanur is a student in seventh grade and can understand his family’s need clearly. As a result, he is very serious about his education and is determined to change his family’s situation. “I want to build my future so that I can remove all of my family crises. I will also work against poverty,” says Mizanur with full confidence.
