BSS, Rajshahi :
Speakers at a function here underscored the need for ensuring the right to education for the poor and underprivileged communities to build an educated and prosperous nation.
They viewed that access to education for all has become an urgent need for overall development of the country. Collective efforts of all government and non-government organizations concerned are of essence in this regard.
Beside, the government, rich people of the society and financial institutions should come forward for providing education support to the underprivileged students.
The observation came at a prize giving ceremony organised by Ladies Organization for Social Welfare (LOFS) at its office in the city in association with Children Education and Awareness Programme and Bangladesh NGO Foundation  on Tuesday.
On the occasion, 32 underprivileged meritorious students, who obtained brilliant results in PEC, JSC and annual examinations in 2017 from different educational institutions in the city, were awarded prizes.
Deputy Director of Department of Social Services Rashedul Kabir and Editor of Daily Sonar Desh Akbarul Hassan Millat addressed the discussion as chief and special guests respectively with LOFS Executive Director Shahnaz Parveen Luckey in the chair.
LOFS Vice-president Azizur Rahman, Legal Secretary Advocate Shahinul Haque and Treasurer Shahidur Rahman also spoke.
The discussants urged all the government and non-government organisations concerned to come forward to protect the legitimate rights of the underprivileged children.
Terming the children as the future power of the nation, they called for ensuring equal rights for flourishing of their latent talent.
Rashedul Kabir said the present government has taken many need-based steps for the welfare of the distressed and underprivileged students.
