This summer, Inara Sunan Tareque '16 completed her Davis Project for Peace, focused on raising literacy rates at Chardowani Middle School in Bangladesh. 

Her holistic approach to this project included:

  • Workshops (for both parents and students) to promote education,
  • Workshops to help students learn about how to use the internet,
  • Construction of a library which contains more than 2,000 books,
  • The purchase of five computers for the school,
  • The addition of an internet connection at the school,
  • Donations to clean up the water-clogged field in front of the school, allowing students to use the play ground, and
  • Creation of a fund to maintain internet access.
