Education is a right, not a privilege.
RON IS SET FOR HIS 6TH PROJECT FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS WITHOUT BORDERS IN MARCH 2020 IN BANGLADESH.
EVERY DOLLAR HELPS!
On this assignment Ron will be covering the work of EduCab and The Masud Parves Library who are building a library for social development by providing educational and learning opportunities to disadvantaged children and a socialization space for the people in a small village in the rural community of Satkhira District, Bangladesh.
Globally, 736 million people (more than 2 times the population of the US) live on less than $1.25 a day. 75 % of this population come from rural areas.
Every day, they face the challenges of poverty, hunger, malnutrition, and limited access to education and essential services. Climate change, overpopulation, and weak governance make their daily suffering even worse.
Empowering rural people offers long-lasting and life-changing outcomes.
Although weak and socially disadvantaged, rural communities have the potential for self-development and dignity. Given the right opportunities, I believe they possess the power to solve their problems.
Changing worlds through photography and highlighting how education is a right, not a privilege, is now Ron's personal and professional goal is life.
