So let’s continue our role as the self-appointed arbiter of what is good and what is bad (yeah we’re taking the role very very seriously), by giving a Boon “You’re Doing Good” Award to the Bibaknets Educational Subsidy Fund (BESF). If you still haven’t heard of the BESF then you should visit their website. But don’t just visit, maybe you should also support their projects particularly their educational program.
Anyway, why are we giving BESF a Boon Award? Because it is helping to send some of our kailiyans to school that’s why.
Although we believe that formal education (or going to school) does not guarantee success, we also believe that it has a liberating effect on people. Can you imagine for instance if you don’t know how to read and write? It might have been okay fifty years ago but it would be a big handicap in this day and age.
So by helping some of our kailiyans get an education, the BESF is doing something positive that deserves a Boon Award. May their tribe increase.
