This is a trust fund established to the memory of Architect Tahseen Ferdous. The goal of this trust fund is to provide educational support to disadvantaged children. In Bangladesh there are many meritorious students who remain unnurtured due to financial hardship. Their families struggle to make both ends meet and providing extra expenses for education becomes a luxury. However, a little support can significantly help these students to realize their full potential and become successful.
