Inspired by the noble initiatives of our hero Jaynal Abedin Chacha, we (Actioneers) agreed that it would be a nice idea to help his school in any way we could. We decided to collect unnecessary books we have in our houses from the campus and use those to build a library for the poor students of the school.
“Action: Boi Onneshon” (Action: Book Hunt) therefore started on March 2011. Students from various departments agreed to volunteer as CRs to collect books from their respective classes and departments. The search went on for about three months. We got huge response!! Then there was the task of sorting the collected books. Happily we got a really large Actioneer team for the purpose.
We exchanged the text books of higher classes at Nilkhet for childrens’ books. A lot of people also donated in cash. And finally on 14 June 2011 we made the happy donation at BUET café where we handed over the books to Jaynal Chacha along with a shelf to keep them in. He was ever so delighted!
He invited us to visit his place whenever we can to see for ourselves the entire initiative, and we agreed happily.
Maybe on or around August we will be visiting Mymensingh at his place, you all are invited to join us then! Jaynal Chacha’s dream is still a long way far from being accomplished, and we all could try our best to lend him a hand of support. For more info follow the links:
