"OFP is for me the powerful story of a young man, Rabiul Islam, who decided to serve his community of Balagram by organizing at the grassroots. He left for a business degree in Dhaka and returned to his home district to implement that knowledge by building opportunities for the children of marginalized members of his community. The establishment of "Bluebell School" is his first major achievement. The second, OfP Institute of Science and Technology (OIST), for technical and vocational education and training, is actively supported by COMMEET."
