Girls prepared to mitigate the impact of disasters

Tarin loves to learn and hopes to continue that into her future, saying, “I want to be a science teacher when I grow up.” Tarin’s teacher, Mr. Mohammad Shamil Hossain, has seen the confidence of his students grow as they learned new skills. “I saw a noticeable change in the students when Cyclone Fani hit. We used the school as an evacuation center and kids who also took shelter with the families here, knew what to do. They prepared the space to make people comfortable and distributed dry food and water. They even knew how to prepare the solar lights to be used during the emergency.”
