ProChESTA started its journey in 2012 as a volunteer organization with the aim of providing
educational support service to meritorious but under-privileged students from different parts
of the country. ProChESTA’s activities are spread all over the country with a view to bringing
changes in the lives of marginal poor people by providing educational support to poor brilliant
students and facilitating income generating activities for them. The main focus of ProChESTA is
to bring about positive changes in the lives of under-privileged students, their families and the
society. To this effect ProChESTA’s two major functions are:1]providing financial facilities to
students (school/college fees, transportation cost, school/college uniform, etc).2]appropriate
counseling to help decide future goal (discussion, constructive guidance, information gathering
information about the student and continuous communication with the student).
ProChESTA has gone a long way in implementing its objectives. In the year 2017 it is trying to further expand its sphere of activities. A] We are trying to assist poor and very poor families in income generating activities with a view to raising their poverty index. As part of this effort we are trying to identify poor/very poor families on the basis of their daily calorie intake and monthly income, thereby helping them to engage in some income generating activities. These identified families will be put into activities based on their previous work experiences/skills or interest for a particular job. It may be in the form of providing fund for small business and assisting them with making appropriate plan for the business. B] To help/serve the old people. Various researches show that elderly people in our society fall into various socio-economic troubles. May be, some have problem with having shelter; some may not have arrangement for food, medication and nursing. Also, elderly people do not have sufficient recreational facilities. Keeping these problems in mind ProChESTA is carrying out an organized search for under privileged elderly people to bring them under the above mentioned program.
To create an educated and skilled/capable generation in Bangladesh to eradicate poverty from society and family.

In Bangladesh the rate of school drop-out at Primary, Junior and Secondary level is quite high. It
is seen that even in the high literacy districts the drop-out rate of students aged between 6-10
is about 15%. Out of an approx total 40 lac dropped out students, 200,000 aged between 6-10
years never went to school. Possibly, these children were either never admitted into school or
never went to school even though took admission; or got admission in school after crossing the
age group (6 to 10 years) mentioned here (UNICEF-2015). In the year 2015 total 22,72,288
students appeared the JSC and JDC examinations. Of them 20,82,000 students passed and
1,74,2007 failed. Apart from this, 1,00,000 students did not appear the exams even after being
registered as examinees. In 2015 the number of dropped out students before completing JSC or
JDC counted to about 2,75,000. According to UNICEF report the number of drop out in the rural
areas is more than that in the urban areas and the ratio stands at 16:11. To overcome this
perpetual problem, it is imperative to pay more attention to the educational system of rural students.
In the same year (2015) out of 16,95,467 registered SSC examinees, only 14,52605 appeared the exams. Among those who passed the examinations, only 13,010,99 got admission to college to appear the HSC examinations. It shows that the drop-out rate of students is more prior to and after SSC period. About 3,94,368 students wither away before and after SSC examinations. According to a government statistics, in the year 2015 about 40.29% students withered away before their SSC examinations and the percentage comes at 19.11% for Class VIII students before JSC Examinations.… Read More
