Help Build a Library for Children in Bangladesh

(English follows Japanese)


私たちはACEF(Asian Christian Education Fund)という日本で設立された非営利団体で、バングラデシュの非営利団体であるBDP(Basic Development Partners)と提携しています。私たちACEFとBDPは、教育を通してバングラデシュの子どもたちがより良い未来が描けるよう、ともに活動しています。ACEFは、誰も取り残されない教育を実現するため、30年以上にわたりバングラデシュの人々と協力しています。









We are ACEF (Asian Christian Education Fund), a non-profit started in Japan in partnership with BDP (Basic Development Partners) a non-profit in Bangladesh. Together, we are trying to give children in Bangladesh a better future through the means of education. For over 30 years, ACEF has been working together with the people of Bangladesh to ensure an education where no one is left behind.

When ACEF and BDP were first established we were addressing the issue of the low literacy rate and working to make primary education accessible, but in recent years we have been focused on improving the quality of education.

While our goals are tremendous, we are currently starting off small in our ask for help to help build a library in one of our partner schools. We currently have 42 schools set up in Bangladesh, out of those 5 have libraries. While just one library seems like a drop in the bucket, it's one drop closer to reaching our goal.

It costs about 100,000JPY (roughly 671 USD currently) to build one library for our partner schools in Bangladesh, we are asking for 104,500JPY (roughly 700 USD) to account for any fees with getting your money to BDP in Bangladesh.

Hi, my name is Ethan! I was born in raised in the United States and currently, I am a university student at International Christian University in Tokyo. This term I am taking a service-learning course where we choose a local NPO to support. I chose to support ACEF because their mission resonated with me and I truly believe in making it a reality.

Studies have shown that reading as a child has many benefits including: cognitive development, developing empathy, gaining a deeper understanding of the world around you, improved literacy skills, a more extensive vocabulary, and increased creativity and imagination.

Let’s give the children of Bangladesh the opportunities that many of us have been afforded, with the gift of books and reading.

It would mean so much to me, the people at ACEF and BDP, and the children of Bangladesh if you could contribute anything to help us build just one more library.

Every penny counts!
