What We Need & What You Get

Through its #NewsCredCommunity program, NewsCred is proud to announce an exciting initiative that aims to significantly expand the social services provided by Nahar, an inspiring NGO that provides health and education services to low-income households in Kafrul, Dhaka. The entire NewsCred Dhaka team has committed themselves to source and provide Nahar with all the resources and funds they will need to build a brand new library to supplement their classrooms. Our vision for this space will incorporate new furnishings and interior design, a wide collection of educational books and toys, and access to computers and IT facilities. 

We are trying to raise BDT 15,000, which will be used to purchase children’s books for use in the library and in the classroom. The books are from local publishers and have an average price of BDT 50, so we hope to purchase at least 300 books from their preferred publisher (World of Children’s Books):;jsessionid=DAA9ACE50FDCB462653EBC2117C62E01?page=11

In exchange for your help, we will mail each contributor a hand-written thank you note from a Nahar student.

The Impact

Reading and comprehension skills are critical to a child's development. Your contribution to the project will enable us to buy books for Nahar's library and encourage reading among its students.

Risks & Challenges

The biggest risk to this project is the availability of the books that we'll need for Nahar. We are in talks with the publisher to make sure that the right books are indeed available at the right time.

Other ways you can help

Reach out to the folks at NewsCred ( and to donate old books and toys that you have to Nahar!
