In honor of my late father Awal Meah, who was not only a former teacher in his home town of Noakhali in Bangladesh, but who was also a kind hearted and compassionate person I am bringing a dream of his to reality.
During my father’s long and difficult battle with kidney disease we spent many hours together talking about everything under the sun from family, to legacy, to love, to passion. It was during this time that I knew I had to continue part of my father’s passion and create a legacy that would not only withstand the test of time but would also positively affect those back in our home town of Noakhali, Bangladesh.
You see my father had a great deal of passion for providing for the younger generation of Bangladesh in the form of a no cost education to the less fortunate youth. Unlike some other places around the globe and here in our new home of America a basic education is a basic right, however in Noakhali without the proper finances the youth cannot continue their education in the local school system.
Awal Meah’s vision was for a Foundation that would help provide the economic support for the under privileged back home so that it will inspire the younger generation to pursue their dreams and achieve a career in the future . Being able to provide these basic educational essentials to these children and their families was something that my father and now I believe must be done.
With great honor I am now completing his dream. I AHM Rahim , President / director of charity organization , has come together
with a team of great Friends/volunteers in creating the Meah Foundation. Established in 2015 with only three members and five students, who continuously added great work into the organization we began laying the ground work for this great cause.
Since the Meah foundation started we have had 15 students over the years benefit from our donations, and Our foundation has had an impact as more students are steeping into a place to make a difference in their lives. Along with continued community support and outreach our donations have steadily grown and we intend to continue this trend to allow brighter futures to flood the lands of Noakhali Bangladesh.
