HAJI AHMAD BROTHERS SECURITIES LIMITED
As part of the corporate responsibility, HABSL established 2 libraries for underprivileged children and new-literate adults in CGS Community School, Dhaka and AEK Adult School, Panchagarh between 25th January and 10th February 2016. Through these two libraries about 200 children and 200 adults will get direct access to books that are specially picked considering their age.
Light of Hope – an education-based organization, supported HABSL to establish these libraries to make sure that the children improve their reading skill, creativity and power of imagination through the world of story books. For adults, the books are carefully selected with the stories that relate to their daily life, besides issues like dowry, child marriage, sanitation etc. are also being covered through these books.
During the inauguration of the libraries, the enthusiasm and interest among the children and adults were surprisingly similar proving that stories don’t have any boundaries – it can bring smile and happiness to people of all age. And books can change lives
