This is Puja Majumdar from Kharia village. Her desire was to finish her education but her parents could not be able to afford it. She lost hope thinking that she will not be able to finish her education. The optimists gave her the opportunity and hope to go back to school and finish her education. She cannot thank enough for what the optimists has done for her.
This is a thirteen year old lad living in Baraipara village at Magura district. He is a talented young kid with large dreams but as he was born with disabilities, it limits him from his abilities. His parents got divorced which disturbed him mentally also, but his class results are off the charts, PSC result GPA-5. He has ambitious goals in his life but due to scarcity of resources, his talent is being hold back. With a little support, he could shine in life and could be example for millions of disabled people that ‘Nothing is impossible.’
The name Samin Sadi might mean absolutely nothing to you. Neither does this portrait of a smartly dressed young man you probably don’t recognise.
But this name now appears on the roll call of a tenth grade classroom in Moulvibazar, Bangladesh. He is a child who grew up lacking nothing, in spirit. He talks politely, with an underlying drive and heart, and nurses a quiet wish to become a businessman. Financial security was the only absence from the promise of his potential. Now he can become anything he wants to be.
The Optimists are that help to children facing the bitter reality of remaining uneducated, a charity which focuses purely on getting these children their education-forcing the future to be open.
The name Samin Sadi might mean nothing to you, but the name Samin Sadi is on a roll call. Samin Sadi is not going to be part of the lost generation, those who struggle to stay in school. Samin Sadi is part of The Optimists, he will stay in education, he will hold a brighter future in the palm of his hand.
And that should mean something to you.
