Solar Powered Floating School, Bangladesh

Shidhulai Swanirvar Sangstha, a non-profit organization, aims to provide year-round eduction for Bangladeshi Elementary students
living in areas of the South Asian country, prone to flooding as a result of monsoons. In some parts, due to the torrential downpours, schools are flooded for 3-4 months a year, providing an obstacle for youth to continue their education during these periods. The initiative has introduced solar-powered floating schools to tackle the problem, ensuring that children are offered uninterrupted learning sessions and classrooms that drive right up to the mainland to pick-up students, even during the height of monsoon season.
