The UTSMS operates entirely on a voluntary basis, with no registration fees or financial support from either side.

Their relentless effort towards providing education to the underprivileged street children of Dhaka is commendable and deserves appreciation. The Mojar School and UTSMS project is a prime example of how education can make a difference in the lives of children and help build a better future for them.
