BACKGROUND OF THE ORGANIZATION

The organization, Btope (Belongs to People), had been working under the name of Uzziban Library (Uplifting Library) in various scattered ways such as Library for Entertainment (for reading novels and stories) arranged local games (like Ha-do-do, Daria Bandha, etc.), Tree Plantation, Food, Old Cloth and Medicine Distribution, Eye & Dental Care Campaign, provide medical facilities etc. in the village (Cenchania) from 1986-95.

But for getting the registration number and spread its areas of activities, we have to change the name of our organization to Btope and trying to obtain the Registration Number. We have also participated in seeking affiliation of the Technical Education Board and Bangladesh Computer Council (BCC).

In 1995 we have taken a number of projects the names of which are given beneath:

BETS (Basic Educational and Technological Supports for Social Development), Sasthaya (Health), Bipanan (Marketing), Study Network and BETS' operation has been installed by BTOPE since the last phase of 1995 to train up comparatively less privileged people.

We have also commenced the project activities of Health Force since January 01, 1995. This will be the general health program from June 1996. We are also going to start the project VFFP as the Internet of World View (Bangladesh) which is being funded by the SDC. But we have not been able to get local or foreign fund yet.

On this perspective we hope that within 1997 we will be able to achieve the pragmatic establishment of the above mentioned projects of Btope steadily.

The present Executive Committee of BTOPE is comprised with 9 (nine) executive members and with 20 general members. The proposed Organogram (Body) of BETS will be as below:

TARGETS AND OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT

a) To lessen the gap of qualities and existing realities in educational sector between the urban and rural areas.
b)  To make the technical and modern technology based education and training easier for the students of rural area, especially for the girls and women.
c)   To promote the technological awareness in the common people of rural area in our country through proper guidance.
d)    To make the rural people well equipped with modern technological education for the field of competition of searching jobs.
e) To accelerate the private business sector based on modern technology like data-entry firm, assembling firm, TV-Radio-Cassette player servicing center, etc. along with various small farming and small cottage industries.
f)  To find out an educational model for socio-economic development of rural areas, not only for our country,  but also for the third world countries like us.
g) To carry out thorough researches to identify the weaknesses of our education system and eliminate them.
h) To integrate the rural youths in the field of socio-economic development of the rural areas.

ORGANOGRAM  (OFFICE  STRUCTURE)

JUSTIFICATION  OF THE  PROJECT

In the context of our socio-economic condition where a large number of young educated people including a huge number of educated female are jobless. They cannot contribute to the socio-economic development of themselves and their neighbors.

Our educational system is based on theoretical courses, not on practical implementation. So, even an electronics engineer knows nothing about the repairing sector of the electronics devices. They do not bother it, because they think that it is not their duty, it only for the uneducated (or lower educated) persons. Our system makes them idle and undone.

If an engineer, even a diploma engineer, becomes familiar with the practical sector of their related field, they may be small entrepreneurs or be small businessmen.

We may look towards another sector of our education system. The persons, who studied with commerce subjects, they also know nothing about the implementation of their learning. Actually our educational system provokes the students to earn certificates by the formal examinations of our systems. So, the students remain in dark as how to apply their knowledge in the specific field of the service or business sector.

In this context, BETS realizes to provide a concrete and functional study method for the students and also for the persons who already finished their formal education life. BETS also realizes that the women's status and power should be increased by provoking and including them in the stream of socio-economic development process. If the women may engage themselves in the earnings, they will be able to improve their miserable conditions in our society. Because only economic power of the women will provide power and status and make them as complete human being as male of our country. Otherwise, they will be found to remain in the miserable condition in the so called restricted society like us and they will be found to remain as preys of the powerful persons of our society.

Not only that, most of the higher- and mid-ranged educated women of our country keep them away from the income generating activities because of our system and lack of opportunities. Our mass people's mentalities also support them to do so. Our countrymen face a terrible problem of taking initiatives. It is our common habit. But if anyone takes the proper steps to push and compile the mass people into any development activity, they response towards that rapidly.

So, BETS counts this matter for the proposed project. BETS also counts another thing that the actual rate of the educated persons in our country faces a stagnated condition for the several long years. Actually this is why the people feel the jobless, even the work-less situation of the educated persons. This prohibits to increasing the rate of educated persons in our country severely. Not only that for the same reason, the condition of dropout of the students is very serious. Table-1 shows the actual figure of the dropout case in the various level of our education system (Source of the Table: Bangladesh Educational Statistics, 1993.).

It indicates a critical trend for our educational systems to achieve the expected result from the education sector and for this problem our development activities face a challenging situation within our country.

BETS considers it as a result of frustration from being jobless persons in the coming years. This frustration produces some critical and unfavorable condition for the promotion of the education, along with the socio-economic development in our society, as:

a)   It prohibits to increasing the number of educated persons.
b)   Majority of the people feel that education is not necessary for performing their socio-economic development activities.
c)   They are afraid of unruly and educated jobless youths.
d)   It also creates an unhealthy situation like drug addiction, hijacking etc. in the country.

Even the mass people are also dislike to send their girls to the school. This causes for the lack of proper education and for their conservatives attitudes (negative attitudes) towards the fruitless modern education of the country. This brings another danger of fundamentalism in our country.

All things of the above are fully justified by BETS and BETS will consider to setting up proper process to help the educated persons to find out their own interested professions with the initiatives of their own.

BETS also finds the urban areas in the country are considerably more well equipped with modern facilities of education than the rural areas in Bangladesh. More than 85% of our population lives in the rural area, but they do not get any modern facilities like the urban peoples. It provokes BETS to adopt the project in the rural area.

The main causes of taking the project to the rural areas of the country are:

a)      Lack of modern educational facilities in the rural areas. Hence, the gap of the education system and qualities between urban and rural areas are increasing day by day tremendously among the rural youths.

b)      Hence the jobless situation is more wider that the urban. So, the jobless and work-less youths of the rural areas are gathered in the urban area, mostly in Dhaka city.

c)      The better half of the population, that is women of the rural areas remain jobless and status less in those areas. There is no sector to absorb the educated youths, including educated women, of the rural area. Thus they (the women) are becoming easy prey to the reactionary and fundamentalist group of the rural areas.

d)      BETS feels to lessen the gap between  urban and rural livelihood by providing skill development programs and by providing the correct directions  and assistance to build up and strengthen both the micro- and macro-economic activities in the rural area.

e)      A large number of Govt. employees and NGO workers are working in the rural area. But there is no skill development centers for them in the rural area. So, BETS holds it also as a powerful point to take the project to the rural area.

f)       There is another target to provide training for the actual poor, especially for the distressed women and handicapped persons to make them involved in the income generating program.

g)      BETS is going to take the same project for the tribes at the same time in the Hill Tracts area. Because, the tribes are less educated and disadvantaged people in the country.

So, BETS expects a tremendous impact of the proposed project on society, educational systems and on the socio-economic development processes of the country. It will surely provide a dynamic force to shake our traditional society to engage in the development process. People will be very active for achieving the goal of the life of prosperity.

Our educational system will also be a dynamic section of providing proper education to the students, based on practical works. The research works of BETS will change the educational system from theoretical to pragmatism.

BETS also expects that the rural youths will be able to engage in the socio-economic development process by acquiring knowledge and by direct guidance of BETS. The women will also be able to participate in the socio-economic development process. For the project, the small businesses like data-entry and composing firms, computer training institutes, electronics and electrical assembling and repairing firms, handicrafts production and business firms, leather products (like shoes, bags, parse, etc.) making firms, etc. will get a tremendous speed and the most of the active and educated youths will be engaged in this process.

This project may also be considered as valuable because of its importance in the field of producing the direct output. The table below shows the direct output of BETS in a year basis. About 10,640 (ten thousand six hundred and forty) participants will be able to get training and technical assistance from BETS in a year.
