Conventional scholarship Donators -Donators cannot know about any students until they actually donate to them. Students -Students who are to receive scholarships usually have nothing to do but just wait for donators. Scholarship Foundations -Almost all foundations are very small and cannot get enough donators.
What I saw in Bangladesh -Lack of Encouragement -No effective support Poor Family But many Hidden Treasures No Work Poor Academic Background
Opportunity for Change Most of the villages have Internet Access and Solar Panels. Everyone can be connected to the world.
How can we solve this problem ?
