Hate Khori Foundation works for the social development of the fishermen’s community in Mathbaria, Pirojpur District. Founded by Suman Chandra Mistri, Hate Khori Foundation started its journey with an aim of eliminating inequality and ensuring access to basic rights and education for the children of the fishing community. “I often visit the Baleshwor River with my friends, as it is very close to my house. One day, we came across a young boy selling food from a box that was strung to his neck. We came to know that his father is a fisherman and cannot afford his school fees. Moved by his story, I, along with my friends started different projects to help such kids.” – Rubel, Chairman of Hate Khori Foundation. Hate Khori Foundation arranges different quiz contests, training and workshops under different projects alongside regular academic activities. The children are also encouraged to pursue co-curricular activities such as sports, art, and other cultural events under the project ‘Alo’. Project ‘Jol O Jibon’ distributes stationery items to the children at one taka price. Their other projects and initiatives include Utsab: festivals celebrated with the fishermen community, Digital Village: spreading digital literacy to the next generation of the fishermen community, Prodorshoni: Teaching the history of the Liberation War and the ideals of the national leaders of Bangladesh, Upokule Anondo Bilash: Creating an opportunity of entertainment and sports for the children, Bonayon: Tree plantation project, Swapnapuran: Providing umbrellas for the children to protect them from rain, Shikkha Barta: Counseling the parents about the importance of education, Shastho Barta: Spreading awareness about sound health, and Hashi: Monetary donation to students.
