Secondary education teaches the skills to function in today's society. Of the 11 million students in rural Bangladesh today, only 2 million will graduate. Students find their schools ineffective, and they need to work to support their families. They get low-skill jobs and the poverty cycle continues.
VAB partners up with schools and implements a two-pronged effort to surmount the poverty cycle
Scholarships to deserving students so they do not need to work, after-school tutoring to help with school work
Train teachers to make classes interactive rather than rote memorization, set up computer labs and science labs, organize debate teams and intramural sports
