A Startup of Grameenphone Accelerator

With a vision of a literate Bangladesh, AlterYouth provides online scholarship management service for individuals and businesses, willing to provide Literacy Scholarships to students in Government Primary Schools throughout rural Bangladesh.

A Literacy Scholarship is TK 800/month, contingent upon 65% attendance in class by the student. With an additional TK 150/month service charge, the total cost of providing each scholarship is TK 950/month, continuing until completion of Class 5 by the receiving student.

AlterYouth does not accept/use donations. It only transfers scholarships from its users to their respective students. The primary purpose of a Literacy Scholarship is to prevent dropouts before a child learns to read.
