With the support of and in partnership with Rotary, Amarok Society, (see, is accomplishing something extraordinary for world education and, we believe, for world peace: we go into what may be the worst slums on earth, in Bangladesh, to teach extremely poor girls and boys by teaching mothers in the slums to become neighborhood teachers. By this means we’re able to educate great numbers of children at very low cost – overcoming barriers to women’s and girls’ education. Dr. Tanyss and Gem Munro, founders of Amarok Society, would be pleased to share with you how we’ve managed to overcome the daunting challenges of our projects in these dangerous and forbidding slums.
