May 2021 – Free-Nutritious-Food Delivered to 7,098 Underprivileged-Street-Children and Uprooted-People by Mojar-School
The last few days of Ramadan and Eid-ul-Fitr were at the beginning of May. During Ramadan, Mojar-School increased the quantity of free-nutritious-food per package provided to the underprivileged-children and uprooted-people than the usual quantity. The quantity of rice, khichuri, pulao, egg, meat, fish, etc given in double the amount per package. Mojar-School wanted to make sure that the underprivileged-children and uprooted people received the proper amount of nutrition after a long day of fasting while continuing their usual hard work. And on Eid day Mojar-School provided special beef-pulao and milk sheymai for the underprivileged-children and uprooted people.
These underprivileged-people enjoyed the good quality free-nutritious-food throughout Ramadan and also were able to keep their fasts without worrying about their food. Several of them thought Mojar-School won’t provide them with food after Ramadan ends. But to their surprise, we continued to deliver food for them every day even when Ramadan was over.
Because of generous supporters like you, these underprivileged-children and uprooted-people got the chance to fast regularly; and enjoy some nutritious-food on the Eid day even in this pandemic situation. Many guardian’s and street-children’s struggles have become easier, and that has only been possible as you supported us in this journey.
So, we are presenting a brief update of the Food Program in May 2021.
Free-Nutritious-Food Delivering Update
In May 2021, Mojar-School has provided free-nutritious-food to 7,098 underprivileged-street-children and uprooted-people. Of these, 100% were street-children and uprooted people in Dhaka (Shahabag, Komlapur, Sadarghat, Street-Children’s Shelter, Dhanmondi, Uttara, Tejgaon, Shaympur, Khilgaon, Agargaon).
We try to bring variation to the food menu every month. The menu includes vegetables, Chicken-khichuri, Tehari, Rice-egg, Rice-chicken, Chicken-Polaou, Chicken biriyani, Beef-Polaou, dates, Sheymai, juice, cake, and our famous egg-khichuri, to differentiate the taste of the underprivileged-children. While arranging the meals ensuring the nutritional value of food is our priority and giving protein the utmost importance.
Birthdays and Other Events
It might be very little for us, but good free-nutritious-food is like a dream come true for those street-children’s celebrations. Because of our well-wishers, the street-children get a touch of enjoyment and celebration in their stale life.
This May 2021, our well-wishers have celebrated a total of 15 events (birthdays, Iftar events, death anniversaries, blessings for parents, and cultural events) through Mojar-School. All these events had cakes, juice, firni, pizza, fried chicken, coke, fruits, and good quality food (chicken-biriyani, beef-rice, mutton-tehari, and chicken-polao) for the children instead of regular meals.
Mojar School’s Well-Wishers
Mojar-School’s well-wishers have directly helped us reach out to a large number of children in May 2021. All of them have donated through the bKash app and the official website of Mojar-School.
Also, the encouragement of thousands of well-wishers through social media has further strengthened our confidence.
Long-term Plan & Impact
Mojar-School believes that long-term solutions will not come by only delivering free-nutritious-food. We must ensure the education of underprivileged-children. Now, 50% of the underprivileged-children enlighten by the light of education through the efforts of Mojar-School for the last 08 years. Mojar-School will keep moving ahead with a plan to ensure education for the remaining 50% of the children very soon.
Thank You Note for Donors
Lastly, we would like to thank all the donors and well-wishers. Today, with your support, Mojar-School has become a place of trust for hundreds of underprivileged-street-children and uprooted people. Without you all, we would never be able to deliver free-nutritious-food to 7,098 underprivileged-children in May 2021.
