Lit the light of knowledge among children
Education is the backbone of a nation. And we all know that children are the future of a nation. If we can provide our children with better education the future of the nation is bright. To lit the light of knowledge, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina hands over a plaque to a student during the prize distribution ceremony of a literary and cultural competition held at Bangabandhu Mausoleum Complex in Gopalganj's Tungipara a few days ago, marking the National Children's Day and the birth anniversary of the father of the nation. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina reiterated her firm commitment to present a "bright future" to the children by building a developed and prosperous Bangladesh, free from hunger, poverty and illiteracy. Expressing her commitment to serve the people until her last breath, she said that she had a desire to turn the country into a suitable abode for the next generation.
Educated and skilled citizens are the first requirement to be a developed nation. Since Bangladesh has a goal to be a developed nation within 2041, dissemination of education among children is a prerequisite.
