Helping Bangladesh dropouts go back to school

A network of schools in villages across Bangladesh tries to fight the country's dropout problem.

    In Bangladesh more children are going to school than ever before.
     
    But many of them drop out before completing their studies.
     
    For 30 years, a non-profit school has been working to bring these dropouts back to the classroom, and keep them there.
