About the classrooms being built

UNICEF is building beautiful classrooms for us. I enjoy learning inside a classroom while sitting on a desk. There will be no pupils learning under a tree. We will be safe from the rains and sun. There will be no people disturbing us during class time and I will pass my Primary School Leaving Certificate of Education.

Because of our security and beautiful classrooms, many pupils will join us and will be selected to secondary school. Many pupils will come at Nankhali school because of the beautiful classrooms being built.  Many girls will not be getting married while young.

We also have a school garden. We use it for agriculture lessons.

My favorite subjects at school are: Science and Technology, English and Agriculture and I like reading. When I grow up, I want to be a nurse. I would like to help sick people and children without parents like me.

I live with my mother. She does small businesses, and cooking donuts. We are four in our family and I am the second born. My father passed away on 16th November, 2011. I have no school uniform and note books.
